The Goldsmiths Company
'Intrigue'. This has been pushing Stuart's work of late, the "how do you open this?", "what is it for?" type of question. Rings with hinges that once opened, but are rivetted shut, knots tied in the ends of spoon handles, boxes that have to be 'figured out' before opening!
Coming from both a fine art, and decorative art based back ground, Stuart has always felt that objects should be a feast for the eye, and also engage the mind.
Contrast is used to create a visual palette, rough with smooth, texture with polished, black with white, the silver becomes a painterly and sculptural material, in which the surface retains all evidence of the creative act.
