Broschen aus Bergkristall, Pigment und Farbe von Julia Obermaier, 2022

The Danner Foundation and the museums of the city of Landshut present the work of 42 outstanding craftspeople in the exhibition "Danner Prize 2023. Excellent Craftsmanship".

Since 1984, the Danner Foundation has awarded the prize named after it every three years for outstanding achievements in arts and crafts. The competition is organised under the patronage of the Bavarian State Minister for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy. This year's Danner Prize goes to Gunther Pfeffer for his showcase cabinet "Raster", whose delicate shell made of fir mouldings arranged in a grid alternates between transparent and closed depending on the angle of view - an invitation to actively engage with the furniture and search for what lies behind it.
The honourable mentions go to Christiane Englsberger's headdress "Fülle" made of rye straw, Beate Leonard's vase made of tombac, the ceramic installation "Lined up" by Nico Schipp and the three-dimensional illusion of enamel brooches by Christoph Straube.

In total, the jury selected the works of 41 competition participants for the exhibition, which embody outstanding craftsmanship, artistic standards and an innovative approach to current trends in arts and crafts. This year's Danner Prize and Danner exhibition are thus once again a highly visible expression of the foundation's aims: to promote young talent, but also to honour established craftspeople and thus contribute to the further development of arts and crafts in a lively discourse.

An exhibition of the Danner Foundation in cooperation with the museums of the city of Landshut.
