MARION KANE

Marion Kane is an award winning Scottish silversmith based in West Kilbride, Ayrshire. She has been creating silver art works and utensils for over a decade. Many of her pieces are in museums or made for celebrity's such as Ewan McGregor; but she prides herself in making pieces that can be used in everyday life.

Using a selection of old worn hammers she textures the surface to give a contrast to the smooth highly polished finish often associated with older silverware. Her ideas are drawn from textures and patterns seen in everyday life: the winter branches of coastal trees, ever changing markings in the sand, fabrics and industrial structures. She uses simple fluid forms that enhance these surfaces with occasional touches of gold to add warmth and contrast. ‘My aim is to encourage the owner to feel and explore the surfaces, and no longer consider silver as too precious to use’
Marion graduated in 1999 with a BA (Hons) in Design, Silversmithing and Jewellery, Glasgow School of Art .
