Silver to Shine Again Online - Don Porritt Exhibition
Following the successful showing of Don Porritt’s retrospective exhibition 'Silver: light, texture and form' at Butcher Works, Sheffield in October 2019, sponsored by Sheffield Assay Office, there is now another opportunity to see some of the work online.
The 2019 exhibition covered 60 years of Don Porritt’s practice and was a tribute to 'Making in the hands of a Master.' A silversmith and designer, Porritt’s work invites a dialogue between proportion, space and volume. Working with some of the most resistant materials, Porritt describes a process where he almost breathes the idea into being. Don Porritt has been a registered maker with the Sheffield Assay Office for 54 years and the office are delighted that the pieces of silverware bearing a Sheffield assay mark will be accessible to a wider audience to view.
