When you think of gold and silversmiths you tend to think of jewellery. But the exhibition 'The Mighty Metalsmith' in Saltaire from 23rd May to 7th July focuses on how you can commission makers to produce something for your home too. Top metalsmiths, including Rauni Higson (see p122), are exhibiting pieces for the dining table such as bowls and cutlery cast in beautiful metals. Other items include Marcus Steel's metal clock and Adrian Hope's 'Snowflute' bowls, pictured. The show is at jeweller Kath Libbert's studio at Salts Mill in the Yorkshire World Heritage Site. On Sunday 9th June, Rauni will be giving a talk on the inspiration behind her rippling silverware. Also speaking will be Crafts Council patron Jacqueline Gestetner, who will share the pleasure of collecting contemporary silver.
