Silver Bowls

Since I wrote about making a silver bowl I decided to show the work of silversmith Elizabeth Peers and her beautiful hand raised bowls.

I was reminded of her beautiful hammered bowls when working on the silver bowl last week.

I love how tactile her work is, it’s just calling to be picked up and held in your palm. This could be because her bowls are perfectly ‘hand sized’ and also because of the way in which she finishes here work. The evidence of the hammer remains on the surface of her work. Which again draws the viewer to inspect the silver by touch. Here are some more images of her work, hope you like them…
