New College, Oxford.

New College - view


Earlier this year I was approached by The Dean of New College to design and make 1 of 16 new beakers to be commissioned for one of their dining halls.  Each of these beakers are to be made by different silversmiths at the beginning of their careers.  I was extremely touched when they selected me to propose ideas and designs for one them and that they had been inspired and excited by my work.  The brief has been left very open, which has given me great freedom to develop my ideas and make something that I feel is also stretching me technically.  I am making them a unique piece that is a development of my technique and my research into skin; it's folds and its imperfections, which have become my signature style.  These, as well as studies into folds in cloth, were also used for the commission of the Rosewater Dish for The Worshipful Company of Weavers, which I shall be exhibiting with my other work at The Goldsmiths' Fair later this month (24th-30th September)
