An exceptional sterling silver Snowflake Bowl

An exceptional sterling silver Snowflake Bowl
London 2015 by Miriam Hanid

Circular, bullet shaped body with irregular wavy rim. The top and the bottom showing an abstracted subtly engraved snowflake on a matted ground.
An exceptional, fine and impressive bowl of a fantastic gauge from one of nowadays leading english artist silversmiths. The snowflake decoration hasn´t been engraved only but was cut out of the surface with a graver by hand.
Several exhibits by Miriam Hanid form part of public and private collections as examples of outstanding modern silver craftmanship already today. For example the Victoria & Albert Museum, London commissioned her with the Union Centrepiece which forms permanently part of the collection. Her work is recognised with numerous awards and participations in exhibitions and she furthermore can refer to commissioned works for the royal house.
Central characteristics of her works are always an exceptional design paired with a virtuoso technical realisation producing objects for the daily use with a sculptural nature.
