Will Odell

Will Odell brings the art of contemporary silverware to everyday functional objects. The collection embraces the pleasures of quality that can enhance our daily lives. Will’s original source of inspiration is rock forms. His fascination with the cracks and splits caused through the course of time forms the foundation of his work. These imperfections are the focal point of his work, the cracks and splits are a reflection of the pressures of life. Will transformed these faults and flaws into a cohesive and distinct body of work. The use of texture is an exciting development in the new collection. Combining tactile texture and his signature cracks has enriched the depth of his work. The elegant and simple forms are textured by hammering to manipulate and coerce the silver. Will’s work embraces and highlights imperfections and in doing so the work has a unique fascination and intriguing quality.
