I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded The Sheffield Assay Office Precious Little Gem’s Commission for 2015-16. On the 17th December I presented my designs to a panel of judges at the Assay Office to speak about the design development and ideas behind my exciting new proposal. The three part Sterling Silver centre piece which has a dual function of being both a set of vases and candlesticks are able to be moved around the table, rearranged or act as individual pieces in their own right.
The design clearly reflect the style of work that I have been producing so far on the Starter Studio programme and will allow me to push myself to create a significant piece to go on display at the Millennium Galleries in April.
