Brett Payne

The silverware and candlesticks that Brett Payne produces are all individually hot-forged, by hand, in Sterling Silver. Traditionally Silversmiths work the metal cold but, if treated with respect and great care, it can also be worked hot; the art of hot forging silver is not much practiced today but it does have a long tradition. Brett Payne has taken this tradition to a new level, developing the skill of hand-forging Silver to explore new applications. His new XY candlesticks have become highly collectable.
