Samantha Moore

Northern Ireland based contemporary silversmith Sam Moore graduated in 2009 from her BA (hons) Fine and Applied Art in the University of Ulster. Working under the tutelage of world renowned Goldsmith Graham Harron, Sam has enjoyed success early in her career having work exhibited with the V&A, The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and the National Trust. Working mainly to commission, her range is extensive, from bespoke engagement and wedding rings and fine jewellery, to awards and trophies, chains of office and ecclesiastic silver. Sam aspires to create contemporary jewelled objects that enhance the everyday routine of personal ritual into silver ‘wear’ that adorns the table, home and body. She draws inspiration from drinking rituals both religious and profane in order to explore the idea of crafts and their role in our cultural identity.
