Anthony Blakeney

The inspiration for this latest range comes from the careful study of the rose root. The power and strength of root through soil is captured in the textures and forms of these organic and original pieces.

Anthony doesn’t design in a conventional manner but forms, sculpts and moulds precious metal in response to the natural resource. He shies away from modern techniques and computer aided technology to favour traditional skills and methods. All his textured pieces are finished with individual attention to detail and his work is constantly evolving.

"Deep in their roots all flowers keep their light"
Theodore Roethke
American poet 1908 - 1963
