About Abigail Brown
Abigail has been producing contemporary designs in silver since 2001 and has exhibited internationally. Her work is multi-award winning, including the the Bavarian States Prize and the ‘Awen’ medal by Gorsedh Kernow, and is included in the collection of National Museum Wales. Abigail is a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths’ and she has received the Freedom of the City of London.
Abigail’s work as an artist silversmith illustrates her deeply rooted relationship to the land, and an ongoing investigation into the panorama of the female form and the natural landscape. Her recent works have become a response to particular places, plants and the elements: the windswept landscape of Cornwall; ancient monuments; and our presence in, and relationship with, the land since prehistoric times.
Abigail specialises in ancient hammer forming methods that have been in use for millennia, such as raising, sinking and chasing, to create beautiful one-off art objects and functional silverware. She uses these traditional techniques as a tool to create the idea and her love for the material is intrinsic to the outcome.
