Biography:

Brian Williamson's contemporary silver is designed to be lived with and enjoyed within the modern environment. One of Brian's principal objectives as a designer-maker is in achieving through simplification of form, a 'functional realism' that is not confined purely to the ornamental. Using function and problem solving as design parameters he creates via drawings and models a form that answers his aesthetic. He has continued to develop hard edge designs softened with specialized surface embellishments - the natural skin of an orange best describes a current textural finish called 'Orange' which is achieved using hammer chasing. All of Brian's silverware is handmade to the highest standard and reflects his interest in designing and making contemporary one of pieces with a crisp attitude.
