Using a selection of old worn hammers I strike a mixture of rough and subtle surfaces onto metal objects that I have constructed from sheet silver using hand raising and traditional fabricating techniques. The textures give a contrast to the smooth highly polished finish we associate with older silverware. My ideas are drawn from textures and patterns seen in everyday life: the winter branches of coastal trees, ever changing markings in the sand, fabrics and industrial structures.
I use simple fluid forms that enhance these surfaces with occasional touches of gold to add warmth and contrast. My aim is to encourage the owner to feel and explore the surfaces, and no longer consider silver as too precious to use.
