During the second edition of Elements in 2016, our Silverscape exhibition featured the work of five exceptional UK silversmiths. The Silverscape, with its striking presentation of these significant pieces of contemporary silver, provides a visual focus at the smith-and-harrison-teapotcentre of Elements . All Silverscape pieces are available for sale.

The five makers who exhibited at  Silverscape 2016 are Marion Kane, John Creed, Grant McCaig, Smith & Harris and Graham Stewart.

Silversmith and Jeweller, Marion Kane, designed and made the incredible chunky coffee set for Ewan McGregor for Silver of the Stars, as well as contributing to the Millennium Collection for Bute House and has added a coffee pot to the collection at the Kelvingrove museum.

As well as creating silverware for the home, John Creed also works as a metalsmith creating larger pieces of work such as sculptures, gates, seating and doors for prominent buildings across the UK. You can see John’s work in Edinburgh at the Scottish Gallery and National Museum of Scotland – for more details see his commissions here.

Grant McCaig recently mentored our 2015 Outstanding Scottish Student Award Winner, Naomi Scott, to help her produce her beautiful fabric inspired goblet that will be on show at Elements. Last year Grant’s work was also featured in Modern Masters [Metalwork and Jewellery] at the Scottish Gallery.

Among Smith and Harris’ numerous commissions is the solid gold sculpture of Kate Moss, ‘Siren’,  commissioned by artist Marc Quinn, which remains the largest solid gold sculpture ever made.

Graham Stewart has worked on a number of prestigious commissions, including pieces made for the Scottish Parliament, The British Embassy and items that have been presented to HM The Queen.
