Commissioning, Designing, CollectionBook - 2000
The art of the silversmith is at the cutting edge of modern design. Faced with the design of a simple domestic object, the silversmiths featured in this volume have produced an astonishing range -- from the minimal simplicity of the purely functional to the lavish ostentation of the truly baroque. These pieces utilize elements of sealife, Scandinavian design, Florida Art Deco, eighteenth-century Rococo, and totemic, timeless symbols of the natural world to forceful effect.
