Every two years the City of Hanau appoints a City Goldsmith, who spends a number of weeks working in Hanau at the Staatliche Zeichenakademie and holding a workshop for the students there. In August the jury chose Isabelle Enders(* Nuremberg 1979) to be the City Goldsmith for 2021.
A silversmith by training, Isabelle Enders is committed to functional ware. She has a particular predilection for pepper and salt grinders: classic everyday utensils that are still mandatory features on the table or in the kitchen today. The artist impressively shows us that this ubiquitously familiar equipment can be transformed into a whole array of art objects that function.
