Abigail creates unique and one-off pieces celebrating materials. Using traditional methods of making in a contemporary way her work celebrates the real craftsmanship of silversmithing and the skill of the maker’s hand to its best.
It was at university where Abigail’s passion for silversmithing was discovered. Her passion is hand raising, the process of growing a piece from a sheet of metal. This method of making has gone on to inform many of her designs and pieces. Her exploration and variation of this skill have allowed her to push the boundaries of the materials, testing their limits to create new and exciting ideas for contemporary silverware. This has also gone on to inform her jewellery pieces. Bringing the traditional methods together with playful and meaningful design.
“It takes time, patience and focus to create a beautiful piece by hand. A single modification can change the whole piece for better or for worse.” – Abigail J Marsh
