Intro
(...) a presentation that shows two decades of jewelry design on the one hand, and also documents the educational versatility on the other. (...)
Support for creativity in the up-coming generation through the presentation of their works has been an important objective of the German Goldsmiths’ House for many years. Therefore, it was a matter of course for the Pforzheim Berufskolleg to celebrate its anniversary with a grandiose presentation in Hanau – a presentation that shows two decades of jewelry design on the one hand, and also documents the educational versatility on the other. For its ten-year anniversary, the Berufskolleg was already a guest in Hanau with its exhibition Jewelry Impulses.

The Berufskolleg: Department of Design, Jewelry, Hollow- and Flatware at the Goldschmiedeschule Pforzheim offers a three-year, full-time curriculum. The practically oriented design education encompasses the intensive training of creative design abilities as well as the technical, i.e. classic goldsmith’s techniques. The primary educational objective is to combine technique and design. The course of study concludes with graduation as a state certified designer (jewelry, hollow- and flatware).

In conceiving the exhibition, over 150 examples by 80 students had to be taken into consideration. The organizers decided to divide the works into various thematic groups such as Identity, Nature, Spaces, Staging, Contrasts, -Knife, Fork and Scissors-, and Current Trends.
