Wally Gilbert

Wally Gilbert is one of those talented craftsmen who can work in Iron and Bronze, do Printmaking and Sculpture, as well as Silversmithing. Wally has a unique and instantly recognizable decorative style, often using fine silver wire and chasing to build up layer upon layer of detailed surface. Many comment that his silver has an Arts and Crafts “feel” to it. His silverwork has won a number of awards, and is to be found in the V&A Museum as well as many other international public and private collections. His commissions include the De Beers Diamond trophy for Ascot 2000 and he was granted the Freedom of The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in 1999. The surface decoration on Wally’s work means that they do not mark easily and only need to be lightly cleaned very occasionally. Previous customers who have purchased his silver always remark that it is a delight to handle and use.
