An extraordinary Britannia silver Hosta Leaf Bowl,
London 2018 by Miriam Hanid
A naturalistically shaped hosta leaf bowl with wavy rim, clear midrib and fan-shaped venation.
An exceptional, large and impressive bowl of a good gauge from one of Britain´s leading contemporary artist silversmiths. This outstanding bowl is a commission work for our gallery.
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 part of the museum´s collection (see here). 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.
