650 YEARS OF GOLD- AND SILVERSMITHS
Wed, 15.03.2017–Mon, 17.04.2017
The Young and Wild Ones
In 2016, to celebrate the 650th year of gold- and silversmiths, the Bundesinnung der Kunsthandwerke [Federal guild of arts
and crafts] launched the competition The Young and Wild Ones. Dedicated to apprentice craftspeople, this prize will continue to be awarded in the future.
The Young and Wild Ones is intended to demonstrate, pay tribute to, and encourage the creative and craft potential of the next generation of Austrian
goldsmiths. Achieving a symbiosis of artistic elegance and artisanal ingenuity is the foundation of “the pursuit of goldsmithery.”
The prerequisite for our craft’s continued existence is the ability to express emotions, beliefs, and opinions in a piece
of jewelry. In this sense, this show is the beginning of a development that we are watching with bated breath.
