The publication Total Stahl presents the results of a competition that was
initiated by the Kolloquium Nordrhein-Westfalen to promote
the artistic and creative use of steel as a material, and that was held in the department of metal design in the Design Faculty of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hildesheim.
Very diverse pieces of jewellery and small-scale sculptures
were created as a result, which either make use of the brittle
hardness of the material or else override these properties. They open up unusual insights into contemporary applied metal art, situated somewhere between artistic uniqueness and design orientated craftsmanship.
Jewellery and objects by four award winners are presented in Total Stahl, as well as work by students and graduates. The presentation is
enhanced with works by established artists, which complete
the spectrum and the possibilities of designing with steel.
Light weight, coupled with hardness and elasticity, makes
much of the imaginable possible. (Georg Dobler)
