Abigail Brown has been producing contemporary designs in silverware and jewellery for fourteen years and has had work exhibited internationally at venues including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Saatchi Gallery, Goldsmiths’ Hall and the German Goldsmiths’ House in Hanau. In December 2014 Abigail became a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths’ and in June 2015 she received the Freedom of the City of London.
Abigail produces work predominantly in silver using traditional methods. She specialises in hand raised vessels, bowls and objects, as well as boxes and jewellery, using a hammer forming technique. Current research themes for her work include the human form, nature, and archaeology.
Her Jewellery is currently focused on the themes of ‘Silversmithing for the Body’ – using traditional silversmithing techniques to create large pieces of jewellery or ‘sculpture’ for the body or domestic environment. The theme of ‘the Body as a Landscape’ is also a recurring source of inspiration and investigation – the relationship between our selves as humans and nature; the relationship of the jewellery with the body; the placing of that jewellery within the landscape of the body; and the landscape of the Earth perceived as a human body.
