Becky Crow Silver Story Teller
Talented Jeweller Becky Crow‘s work has always had a strongly illustrative leaning. It grows out of drawings and sketches some observational, some imagined. She is a wondrous link between the world of illustration and silver smithing.
Becky says “I work with sheet silver, and copper with some small amounts of gold for detailing. The metal is pierced out, I will then apply textures or patterns to the surface using a rolling mill and templates. These components are then layered together and soldered. The pieces are finished with a mixture of matt, oxidised and polished surfaces to add depth and tone”. These forests are beautiful.
Perhaps inspired by “Where the Wild Things Are ” ? What do you think ?
I’m always drawn to collections of animals in silver, these make me smile.
Something for the gardeners in your life …
The explorers, the worldly and the wise, something for everyone.
