The silver objects on the ceremonial table rank among the visual highlights. With technically mastered and creatively worked silver, this 'supreme discipline' is a centuries-old tradition. In order to give the tradition renewed stimulus, the Silver Triennial 2010 is being held by the Association for Goldsmith's Art, now for the 16th time; 158 artists from 20 countries are taking part in the competition; 83 of these participants and their outstanding works will be presented in this publication. 'International' signifies a global review of the outstanding achievements from Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan and the USA. The selection was chosen by an independent jury. In a world of mass consumption, everyday silver objects created by hand, such as tankards, bowls, candlesticks, vases, cutlery and also artistic statements with no utilitarian purpose whatsoever, meet a circle of interested people, who seek the individual who delights in the inimitable sheen of silver and who values its unique quality. The 'scene' also has its stars. For Hiro Suzuki, Tokyo/London, the play with the material is absolute priority. The artist expresses his creativity with silver and thus develops his large vessels with no designs or models in a direct challenge with this precious metal. The silver Triennial has been organised since 1965 by the gesellschaft fur Goldschmiedekunst (Association for Goldsmith's Art) and the Deutsches Goldschiedehaus Hanau (German Goldsmith's House) to promote contemporary silversmithing. Through national and international exhibition programmes, it has become recognised worldwide.
