Bryony’s elegant work brings a hint of humour and glamour to the simple items we use in our daily rituals. Covering a wide span from the theatrical to the everyday, the designs cleverly combine figurative sculpture and functionality with a large dollop of wit.
Bryony’s experience as Silversmith in Residence at Edinburgh Zoo has informed her recent collection- a series of kinetic silver objects, with function and form inspired by the essence of animals and birds. Her work also explores the combination of glass and contemporary chased silver, creating sculptural yet functional silverware with a twist. Interaction, dual functions, movement and colour are important elements in her designs.
Bryony specialises in the ancient silversmithing technique of Repousse and Chasing. By using pine pitch and a myriad of small steel punches, she fashions and forms these functional silver sculptures. She holds Masterclasses in this technique from her studio is based in Leith, Edinburgh. Collections & commissions include J K Rowling, Winchester Cathedral & HRH Princess Anne.
