Contemporary Silver: A Selling Exhibition by Christie's Auction House
Christie's auction house is currently doing a small exhibition on Contemporary British Silversmiths in their London King Street premise this summer. 61 British craftsman made 186 pieces (some were made specifically for this exhibition) to exhibit their range. Some used traditional method such as hammering to make their ware while others resort to use computer-aided techniques. There are some amazing pieces in this selling exhibition. I particularly like the Arc 4 Jug by Martyn Pugh. The line of the jug is simple and elegant; goes perfectly with that B&B Italia table you just bought.
