Susie Heuberger wins TALENTE - Masters of the future prize 2023

© IHM Internationale Handwerksmesse

Congratulations to Susie Heuberger (BFA 2021)! The TALENTE Award is presented annually at Handwerk und Design in Munich to young talents from the fields of glass, ceramics, jewellery and textiles.

About the jury's decision:

The design and the material of Susie Heuberger's necklace, which is made of corn kernels, garnet stones, cotton and poly silk, refer to Mexico in many ways. With her work, Susie Heuberger alludes to political and social, but also to ecological aspects of the country. From an economic point of view, maize as food replaces precious stones. At the same time, Susie Heuberger's use of thread refers to fundamental aspects of jewellery, whose origins and early design lie in the work with textile materials.
