Policast @ Loewe Craft Prize
Peter Bauhuis is finisher at 2020 Loewe Foundation Craft Prize
The Jury's statement: Fascinated with the possibilities of combining and casting different metals, Bauhuis has created a series of vessels with an almost painterly quality. Breathing new life into one of the oldest techniques in metalwork, he simultaneously pours silver and brass into the mold, allowing the alloys to merge and oxidise in different colours and unruly shapes. The dynamics of the process are frozen at the moment of solidification, creating patterns that appear stratospheric.
The LOEWE FOUNDATION recently revealed the names of the 30 shortlisted artists for the 2020 edition of the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize. Each finalist’s work will be exhibited at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 21 May to 12 July 2020, when the overall winner will be announced. (craftprize.loewe.com)
