Since it’s so dark and wintery out there today I went in search of some bright and colourful silverware. Thankfully there is no shortage of brilliant silversmiths who use colour in their work.
The first silversmith I’ve chosen to lift the winter blues is Sarah Stevenson. Her work combines the metal with a range bright colours that sit perfectly together. The dessert bowls above are a perfect example of this, the flowing reflective silver is beautifully contrasted by a bubble of colour. She makes these pieces in silver plate but also offers the option of having them made in sterling silver. So they can suit any price range.
The second silversmith that isn’t afraid of a bit of colour is Victoria Delany. Her range of tableware combines the traditional with the contemporary. These candlesticks are a great example of this. They are quite traditional in their form yet the use of blocks of colour transform them into something new and exciting. The colours used range from vibrant red and yellow to the more subdued grey and wood blocks.
