I will be exhibiting some of my silversmith pieces at ‘Inspired 2016’. This is the fourth collaborative selling exhibition between the Festival of Silver, the Furniture Makers’ Company and John Higgins Contemporary Silver. The Goldsmiths’ Centre will once again host this impressive exhibition of the UK’s finest silversmiths and bespoke furniture makers.
On display will be the work of 80 of the finest UK silversmiths, including Rod Kelly and Hiroshi Suzuki, as well as the monumental work of Thalen & Thalen from Belgium and the innovative silversmithing of Lasse Baerhing from Denmark. Also showing will be 15 of the UK’s finest bespoke furniture makers including world renowned John Makepeace; and other prominent holders of the Furniture Makers’ Company’s prestigious bespoke Guild Mark, awarded for excellence in design and craftsmanship. We are also delighted to invite ‘Evelyn’ the Mosaic Horse, made by Andrew Heath and Diana Storey from Sheffield, as a very special guest.
The event is sponsored by The Goldsmiths’ Company, The Furniture Makers’ Company, Cookson Precious Metals, City stockbroker JM Finn, Argex, The Pearson Silver Collection, The Silver Society, London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Scottish Assay Offices, and silversmith Malcolm Appleby MBE.
Festival of Silver was founded in 2008 by Gordon Hamme and the silversmith Brett Payne to promote UK silversmithing and has since that time organised over 80 events nationally and internationally.
