Silver : The Dark Side
Goldsmiths Fair, Goldsmiths Hall, London UK 2016
“Goldsmiths’ Fair is delighted to present Silver: The Dark Side, a trailblazing exhibition at this year’s Fair that showcases silver in a dramatic new light.
This special display of new and recent work from some of the UK’s most exciting silversmiths and jewellers features striking pieces with black oxidised silver surfaces, plating and
non-precious metals that challenge traditional perceptions of silver. Blackened objects, several of which combine precious and non-precious metal, are transformed into low-maintenance luxuries.
Organised by renowned craft and design consultant and curator, Brian Kennedy, the display brings the dark out of the shadows, shining a spotlight on opaque metal.”
