About Hannah Felicity Dunne

Using traditional silversmithing techniques Hannah makes sculptural silverware and jewellery. She keeps a visual diary, a collection of photographs taken from her travels and local walks. Hannah’s work is an interpretation of her experiences of the places that inspire her, the pieces reflect her perception of the natural world. Working in a variety of scales Hannah finds new approaches to her work both her larger pieces and finer jewellery inform, influence and compliment each other. Her work is a continuous journey of exploration of form and texture in metal, evolving over time with her experiences.

Maker Enquiry Form

Hannah’s making process begins with sinking and hand-raising a sheet of silver usually into a bowl or vessel. The abstract forms of the piece are created using a combination of hammers, punches, sandbags and stakes. Hannah’s approach is intuitive and experimental; the final forms and textures are not pre-planned. She allows the silver to guide her feeling its movement and response to the tools. Using the same hammering techniques Hannah makes sculptural cuffs, bangles and rings, wearable pieces of silversmithing.
