Made for the Table

A collection of beakers was commissioned by the Goldsmiths’ Centre for the exhibition Made for the Table. Each silversmith imaginatively responded to the theme ‘old and new’ in developing a unique design from a spun form, to create a one of a kind drinking experience. From designs inspired by the gin making process to sunrise and sunset, the diversity of responses, all taking the same spun form as their starting point, illustrates the extraordinary range of design and making skills practiced by emerging makers today.
