Andrew has a background in craft and design and trained at Shoreditch College, specialising in Jewellery and Silversmithing. Andrew is a registered silversmith and has his work hallmarked at Goldsmith's Hall in London. After a career in design education, he now works both as a designer/maker and as a tutor at Artworks Studio in Aldsworth near Emsworth.Andrew enjoys exploring the potential of silver by experimenting with processes and techniques including forming, folding, fusing, texturing and surface finishing. He works predominantly in silver, with occasional accents of other materials. Andrew's focus is on the technical and aesthetic challenges of working intuitively, whilst allowing the spontaneous to complement the planned.Andrew's enjoyment of photography provides an abundant source of inspiration, including landscapes and natural forms. Much of his work reflects the shapes and textures of the Cornish granite coast, and more recently Andrew has been producing pieces inspired by leaf and pebble forms.
