We are excited to be showing the largest work in pure silver that Japanese-born metalsmith, Junko Mori has ever made. She created this through a process of hand-forging thousands of silver elements before welding them together to create a unique, botanically-ispired composition. A work of this scale and complexity is unprecedented and is truly a worthy of a place in the history of British silver.
This monumental vase by Kate Malone showcases her confident vision of form and sensitive use of crystalline-glazes perfectly. The dynamic and playful elements that decorate this elegant vase become a canvas for glazes to drip, pool and crystallise. Kate was inspired to make this sculptural work of art following a recent commission from Shipley Art Gallery to make a similar piece in scale and conception.
