Cass alumna is shortlisted for prestigious international award.
Date: 12 February 2020
Naama Haneman, a graduate of MA by Project and now Artist in Residence at The Cass, is one of the 30 shortlisted artists for the 2020 edition of the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize.
Naama’s work, ‘Movement’ will be exhibited with pieces by the other finalists at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 21 May to 12 July 2020, when the overall winner will be announced. The award, organised by the Loewe Foundation recognises the shortlisted artists as having made fundamentally important contributions to the development of contemporary craft. Finalists were selected by a panel of experts from 2,920 total submissions. The finalists, hailing from 18 different countries, range from newly emerging artists to esteemed leaders in their fields.
Naama Haneman is an artist for whom silversmithing represents the integration of practical design and art and a way to touch in emotions, thoughts and sensations. Naama Sculpts in metal from movement reborn at every moment by emotion, without a preordained concept and without intending the work to be functionally useful. The composition of the two vessels in Movement, her shortlisted work, echoes her interest in the coexistence of chaos and order in nature. Brass and sterling silver are soldered together and the resulting thin sheet is hammered into a contradictory form, which delivers a dialogue between the seen brass of the exterior and unseen silver beneath it.
