The Scottish artist silversmith Hamish Dobbie
Hamish Dobbie designs and creates silver work in his Glasgow workshop as a talented silversmith of the younger generation that harmonises traditional silversmithing with digital design. His artistic inspiration comes from the barren, rugged landscape of Scotland and in particular the Scottish Highlands, whose rock formations and textures of the mountain surface find their way into his silver. His distinctly non-conformist silver works have won several awards and are represented in several public and private collections, including the Pearson Collection, UK’s most important privately run art collection dedicated to modern silver by British artists. In addition, the National Museum of Scotland also presents a modern vase in sterling silver by Hamish Dobbie as an example of outstanding Scottish silversmithing in its department of contemporary art and design (please see here).
Any other decoration is shown for illustrational purposes only and does not form part of the offer.
