Yesterday, the jury on this year’s Loewe Craft Prize panel – that included creative director Jonathan Anderson, amongst others – announced that Japanese sculptor Eriko Inazaki had won the third edition of the coveted Prize for their work, Metanoia, 2019.

Selected from 30 finalists, Inazaki’s work was created through an accumulation of minuscule forms that coalesce across a crystallised surface, creating a beautiful, almost sci-fi ornamental effect that won the jury’s vote. The jury also agreed on two special mentions: Dominique Zinkpè’s intricate wall sculpture, The Watchers, and Moe Watanabe’s walnut bark box, titled, Transfer Surface.

Inazaki’s winning sculpture will be exhibited in Isamu Noguchi’s Studio at The Noguci Museum in New York from 17th May until 18th June alongside the other shortlisted works
