Wally Gilbert

Wally works to commission not only in silver but cast iron, aluminium and bronze, and in scale from jewellery and chased silver combined with gold detail and semi-precious stones to the parapets of a road bridge in cast aluminium, and the balcony for a private house in cast iron. He has made sculpture in silver and in bronze and in 2008 combined these two materials in a commission for a pair of wine coolers for the Birmingham jewellery and Giftware Federation. He shares many of the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement with which his work is often compared.
