Let us introduce you to their works.
Yuki Sumiya (selected for Schmuck) with her “GARDEN ” series
Experimenting with the ideal relationship between man and nature.
“I see this, in the synthesis of the natural and man-made in a beautiful garden,
where the gardeners have thinned out the cedar trees,
erected fences incorporating the original trees,
and also sown lawns interspersed with concrete surfaces,

I want to ask, “How can we, man and nature, co-exist?””
Carla Movia (selected for Schmuck) with her series “APERTO”
In process of transformation.
“The commemoration of a secret that only through a rite can be revealed.
Lighting up a candle in order to discover the unknown,
celebrating the wait more than the final result.
Then, it’s only through the act of wearing that the jewel gains its complete freedom.”
Koen Jacobs (selected for Talente) with his series “DESTROYED BEAUTY”

It takes CO2 from the air and gives oxygen back to the earth so we can breath.
Cutting down a tree will stop this system. It will fall down, break in parts and give way for new life.

ebony wood and resin and how to let them become one. I found the answer in the circle of creation and destruction”
they slip through our hands and through our head.
They present themselves as a truth.
However the hooks are ever lasting while the source disappears.
One will remain with an empty steel rod to carry as a reminder of what was inside it.
