Fourth Prize (Hanauer Schmuckhalbzeug Silver Prize)
This vase by the Korean jewellery designer and metalworker JaeHui Jeong (°1992) plays with round and square shapes. Though it appears to be a classic, simply cast vase, nothing could be further from the truth. Jeong hammered the object entirely by hand. She gives the impression that metal is as flexible and elastic as rubber. What caught the jury’s eye in this striking design is that it looks as if a rubber membrane has been pulled over another object. They were impressed by the way the geometric forms conceal themselves.
