Corinne shares her passion for British silversmithing:
“British silversmithing leads the development and debate around contemporary craft, with Britain firmly at the world’s centre for contemporary silver. Silver has now become a medium of choice for makers for the expression of ideas; Metal is their language. Silver long out of favour is now being rediscovered and enjoyed by a new generation of makers and consumers.”
Corinne will discuss the myriad qualities of silver and how silversmiths use a combination of head, heart and hands to produce their work. From the concept and its development, to the processes used in its making - these are all inherent components of the final work.
Corinne will showcase the work of an extremely talented, diverse group of silversmiths, all of whom are pushing the boundaries of techniques and making – from the traditional to the cutting edge.
