Black Dog Collective

I'm delighted to announce that earlier this week I was approached by Black Dog Studio to join their collective.  My first show with them is fast approaching, so whilst I'm is busy hammering away in the workshop I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to celebrate with me and meet the other makers at the private view of our first show together entitled Material Redefined.

Black Dog Studio is a collaboration of like minded artists working in furniture, glass, ceramics and silver.
Driven by a passion for taking raw materials and creating unique objects, we share a common philosophy that the
work produced is by the hand of the maker and is individual in approach and design, far away from the world of mass production.
We believe that nothing exists in isolation and having a multi-disciplinary approach allows us to consider how objects co-exist
and how it is possible to enrich our lives functionally and aesthetically.
Public Viewing - Tuesday 27th August - 1st September 2013 10.30 - 6pm
Private View Evening - Thursday 29th August from 6.30 - 8.30 pm

Craft Central Gallery Space, 33 - 35 St. John's Square, London. EC1M 4DS

I'm delighted to say that I currently have my work on display at Christie's, London.  It is being shown as part of 'Contemporary Silver: A selling Exhibition'.  The show is  advertised as 'Showcasing work by Britain's leading silversmiths' .  It is a collection of pieces from over 60 members of the Contemporary British Silversmiths, to which I am honoured to say I have recently been awarded full-membership.  Each silversmith has a number of pieces on display including a new piece specifically designed for this exhibition at Christie's.  The online sale offers 186 lots with a focus on traditional and cutting-edge tableware.   The catalogue can be viewed here  - Christie's online catalogue and the exhibition can be viewed in person at Christie's until 5th September, where the Downing Street Silver Collection is also on display.
