Brut!

From October 13, 2022 till June 5, 2023 you can visit the exhibition Brut! by father and son Thalen in the Dutch Silver Museum in Schoonhoven, the Netherlands. Like the famous champagne Brut, the objects represent fineness, sparkles and are a bit rough on the edges at the same time. The contemporary silver sculptures made of the purest metal invite you to taste, hear and touch. Still, a lot of hammer blows are needed to bring this relatively precious metal into the shape of cutlery, plates, candelabras and art objects. Brut! surprises and inspires the visitor with old, new and experimental work.

Secret of the smith

Discover the trade secrets of the smith in the Dutch Silver Museum! But what could the secret be about? How does a silver smith or a gold smith create certain objects? Even some of the experts still wonder how some objects are made. In this exposition we take you behind the scenes to discover how some of the objects are actually made. During this exhibition you experience how the trade of the silver smith has evolved in the past centuries. You also learn more about how the modern day smith challenges himself to use innovative techniques. This exhibition can be visited until 29 January.
