Rupert Todd

Rupert began silversmithing at the age of 15 and found he had a great passion for creating beautiful forms inspired by the natural world. His current pieces; The Devices take their inspiration from natural phenomena such as optics, balance, and principles of leverage. They develop these concepts creatively into sculptural, functional forms, such as the Cantilever Vase, and Optics Champagne Flutes. The Trigonal series takes its joy from the craft of making, and experimenting with traditionally unused or unavailable materials and techniques. The Trigonal Flame Dishes, for example, have base and walls structurally joined with fused 9ct gold.
