Biography:

Katey produces a range of chased silver products. Each piece is individually hand-formed and every hammer mark is struck with careful consideration. Direct contact with the tool is clearly visible, adding to the unique quality of each piece. One of the special characteristics of chasing is the ability to watch the form evolve and continually refine the piece as the work progresses. Earlier this year Katey was awarded with a Goldsmiths’ Craftsmanship & Design Award for her high standards of excellence in the technique of chasing. Recent commissions include corporate silverware for the G8 Summit on behalf of the Home Office and Sheffield City Council, a piece for 'The Guardians of the Standard of Wrought Plate within the Town of Sheffield' on behalf of Sheffield Assay Office and a salver to be housed in the National Trust's Nostell Priory. She also has work on permanent display in the Sheffield Assay Office Collection.
