Pforzheim revisited – Creating contemporary jewellery using manufactory-style techniques

25 November 2022 through 22 January 2023

Embossing, pressing and guilloché engraving are techniques employed in manufactory-style jewellery production. Within the context of the »Pforzheim Revisited« semester project, initiated in 2010, they are experiencing a new lease of life: students of the Jewellery and Everyday Objects Design course at Pforzheim University use these techniques to create contemporary jewellery. The project has been made possible by a collaboration with the German Museum of Technology in Berlin and the Technical Museum of Pforzheim’s Jewellery and Watchmaking Industries, as well as thanks to the support from the C. Hafner company. The exhibition will be spotlighting the works created by the participants of the scholarship programme of the past twelve years.
