BRYONY KNOX SILVER WITH A TWIST


Inside the Studio

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 functional silverware with a twist. Each individual piece is brought to life using the ancient techniques of repousse and chasing. She represented Scotland with these designs at SOFA – Sculpture Object Fine Art – in Chicago and now at COLLECT – The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects, at The Saatchi Gallery, London.
