Tobias Møhl & Kevin Grey Announced As Loewe Craft Prize Finalists 2020
Adrian Sassoon is delighted to announce that Danish glass artist, Tobias Møhl and British silversmith, Kevin Grey have been shortlisted as finalists for the celebrated Loewe Craft Prize 2020.
Their chosen works highlight their technical expertise in glass and metal.
Møhl’s Black Twill Collection is a group of five botanically inspired vessels made in clear and black glass. The different patterns are created using Filigrano, cane and pasterelly, Venetian techniques which Møhl has developed over thirty years of research and experimentation.
Møhl says of his work: ‘I let the glassblowing itself inspire me and curiosity motivates me. I look for textile and optical qualities in the glass and try to cultivate these.’
Kevin Grey’s career started in the luxury automotive world and he has since developed the inventive techniques learnt during that time to create artwork such as Chiral Vase. Using TIG welding to join individually hand formed pieces of silver, Grey’s mastery of this technique allows him to achieve absolute precision as he pieces together metal to create vessels of unique beauty.
The Loewe Craft Prize celebrates the best in innovative contemporary craft. Now in its fourth year, the prize has gone from strength to strength, this year attracting over 3,000 applicants. The winner will be announced on May 19th and the accompanying exhibition, featuring the 30 selected finalists works of art will go on display in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris between May 21 to July 12th.
New work by both Tobias Møhl and Kevin Grey will be exhibited at TEFAF Maastricht on Adrian Sassoon’s stand.
