The British Are Coming!

An online exhibition of Silversmiths who currently reside and practice in the UK. The goal is to show the best current contemporary silversmith work from the UK. This exhibition aims to explore if there is a specific British silversmith style that is different from silversmithing styles in other countries.

The works submitted have been made from 2011 onwards.

MAKE WAY

MA in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products is the title of our course programme, which the jewellers and designer-makers featured below have experienced. This is however a very limited and traditional description when one considers the wide variety of studio methods, artefacts and products that are within the province of the designer who has knowledge and expertise in the area of personal ornaments, body signification and decorative metal objects.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
