Contemporary Silversmithing & Jewellery.
Kirsty Eaglesfield’s contemporary silverware and jewellery is inspired by the way the sea weathers and erodes objects changing their form, colour and texture. Tumbled piles of fish crates, old buoys, pieces of sea-washed glass, driftwood and the construction and shapes of boats are all central to her work as a silversmith. Used, worn objects and the way they have been patched-up and repaired, often modified for a use different to the object’s original purpose also inspire her.
