TALENTE’14 Nominees

Photography by Linda Beumer

“For the past 5 years I was and still am a jury member at Talente, the international competition for young talent no older than 33. It is quite remarkable to be seen as a young talent at that age, having regard to the fact that students graduating are getting younger and younger. During these years I have seen some exceptional and intriguing work, which shows that craft nowadays is more than just good handwork and skills.

It is about innovative techniques, social and sustainable context. It is about objects of desire and tradition, about products or concepts that raise questions. And above all it is about storytelling and authorship.”
