The joy of imperfection

  • • Emil twice won his jewellery school's prize for excellence
  • • His work consciously retains the marks of manual creation
  • • He followed his parents into the profession

It was in 2008 when Emil Krack worked on a silver spoon during an internship at his parents’ workshop. “I felt that this was 100 percent what I wanted to do and I couldn’t wait to finish school and start my apprenticeship,” he says. After another internship with gemstone carver Rüd Jerusalem & Sohn in Idar-Oberstein, he started his training as a silversmith at the public vocational school for glass and jewellery in Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz. During his training, Emil received the school's renowned Danner Preis two times, in 2013 and 2014, for his excellent creations. Since 2018 he has been working in his own workshop, continuing the family tradition and refining his unique design language that harnesses imperfection as a reminder of the creative process.
