Designs on Silver: Introduction


Our online exhibition examines the role of design drawings in the art of the contemporary silversmith. Explore the exhibition, and the stories behind the drawings, by clicking on the images. Shown alongside the finished pieces which have been made from them, these designs take us to the heart of the creative process. A maker uses a drawing to feel their thinking. It is a way of exploring the world and translating a concept into silver.
