Wally GilbertFantastic Beasts and Silver
After almost ten years absence we are delighted to have a new collection of work from internationally renowned silversmith Wally Gilbert
The ‘Beasts’ were cast and patinated in Philadelphia by Julia & Shane Stratton. They are each the result of successively cast and refined waxes in order to obtain as nearly flawless a surface as possible, winning an award at the Goldsmith’s Design competition. The Beasts on display are the first and original bronze castings.
The Trio of hand-chased silver dishes won a Gold Award at the Goldsmith’s competition and when designing them Gilbert was thinking of flowing water, creating a continuous flowing pattern that is balanced but not repeating.
