2018 Summer Exhibition
21 June – 1 July 2018
Our 9th exhibition of Contemporary Silver, Silver and Enamel, and Contemporary Jewellery will take place from Thursday June 21st 2018 until Sunday July 1st 2018, and we can promise you an amazing exhibition of exceptional pieces – all of which will be available for sale.
During 2017 we commissioned a number of key pieces in preparation for this exhibition, to enable you to find unique examples by the very best silversmiths and jewellers in the UK. These commissions include fabulous pieces of work from Jane Short, (Silver and Enamel) Nan Nan Liu, William (Sang Hyeob) Lee, Adi Toch and Yasuke Yamamoto. These will all be available in our Summer Exhibition.
We are also very proud to be able to show a selection of work at this exhibition from Kevin Grey. Kevin’s unique approach to design and execution has earned him the prestigious Goldsmiths Company Award three times – 2010, 2012 and 2014 – His groundbreaking and exciting work combines cutting edge modern technology such as laser welding and TIG welding combined with traditional silversmithing techniques. In 2017 he broke the British record for a price achieved at auction by a contemporary silversmith. The auction took place at Bonhams in Knightsbridge. The record was broken with his piece ‘Animus’.
John Higgins Contemporary Silver support the aims and objectives of Contemporary British Silversmiths, and most of the Silversmiths exhibiting with us this year are members of CBS. During our forthcoming Summer Exhibition, we are supporting CBS by providing a display area dedicated to work from graduate members of CBS – and we hope you will take the time to see and purchase their work.
