About Me:

Bryony's experience as Silversmith in Residence at Edinburgh Zoo has informed her recent collection- a series of kinetic silver objects, with function and form inspired by the essence of animals and birds. Her work also explores the combination of glass and contemporary chased silver, creating functional silverware with a twist. Pieces often have a kinetic element, inviting the onlooker to pick up the object and deicover a hidden function or movement. Each individual piece brought to life using the ancient techniques of repousse and chasing.
Bryony graduated with a Masters in Design from Glasgow Scool of Art and she has been working in metal - from brooches and automata to gates- for nearly 20 years. She has a studio in Leith, Edinburgh and has been commissions include objects for J K Rowling, Wichester Cathedral & HRH Princess Anne.

I have a studio in the brilliant and buzzing Coburg House Art Studios, by the historical port of Leith, 15 mins from central Edinburgh. Coburg House has over 70 different artists and makers and is set in a wonderful converted 1920s Tea Storage warehouse. We are open collectivley to the public two weekends a year- first weekend in August and December for our famous Open Studios.
I am very happy to meet members of Guild Trip, by appointment, but am not open everyday to the general public, as I am a working studio and also teach creative metalwork here.

Did you know...

What is a Runcible Spoon?
When I was a child, I love the nonsense poems of Edward Lear. When reading 'The Owl and the Pussycat' I asked my Dad what a 'runcible spoon' was. Little did I know that years later I would get the chance to invent my own! Mine is a small silver spoon brooch, with kinetic legs which swing as you walk... my RUNcible spoon!

How do you know that you have found what you are meant to be doing?
My art teacher at College said, that if the day has flown by in an instant, then you have found where you are meant to be. I find that days and weeks can dissapear as I sit, tap, tapping away, with little steel tools, working the silver sheet into various birds or animals. I find the technique of Repousse and Chasing quite calming, and know that I have found what I am meant to be doing.
