At the occasion of Art Brussels last spring (April 2010), the contemporary jewelry art gallery Caroline Van Hoek showed part of Hannah Joris’ installation of 99 brooches in potato and iron from her M.A. graduation project (Konstfack, Stockholm, 2009) called “Our vulnerable position”. French editor Élisabeth Paillié visited the exhibition and contributed a brief article to the design magazine Intramuros (n°149, pg. 10).

Masterprojects Object & Jewellery

Posted by ilse on Tuesday July 13th 2010 at 10:53

Right from the beginning, the teaching staff of the Masterclass Object & Jewellery and the Masterstudio Art/Object & Design had the feeling that it would be an important academic year with strong masterprojects. The report of the Wanatoe-jury agreed upon this intuitive feeling: the masterclass was regarded as the most interesting and most research-based studio, one of the best in Flanders at the moment.

Jill Ryckaert, with her jewellery evolving out of a subjective interpretation of ‘the tree of life’ from Darwin, is granted the Wanatoe-price and is nominated for the Marzee International Graduation Show.


Lore Langendries is explicitly balancing the border in between the craftsman and the designer, creating in that way both unica en multiples. For her work, she is granted the price ‘Design Platform Limburg’ and hereby the first candidate for ‘Toegepast 16’.


Dries Dockx presents himself as a real silversmith, questioning the functions of objects throughout his work. He is granted the prestigious price ‘Wim Ibens’.



Zeno Vaes assembles from materials and stories found at the Belgian coast a series of interesting jewellery. His work also is selected for the Marzee International Graduation Show.


Eline Fransen grants motion a central place within her jewellery. Also the game-component is important in her work, causing an interesting interaction between the people who wear her jewellery, the ones looking at it, and the jewellery itself.


Ine Theuwissen develops jewellery where the people, wearing the jewellery, become co-creator. This kind of interaction makes sure that the final view upon her jewellery is never the same.


All projects are presented in ‘Zilvermuseum Sterckshof’ in Antwerp (‘zilvertalenten’) and this until the 18th of july.
