Regularly celebrated as on of Britain’s most innovative silversmiths, David Clarke also produces unusual works of nickel plated pewter. Traditional techniques and styles meld quite well with more “out there” designs – often mashing the handmade with the ready-made.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1997, Clarke has helped helm a renaissance of British metalwork. Awards include the 2010 Jerwood Contemporary Makers Prize.

Just in – Clarke has just been shortlisted for the National Metal Design Award. Congratulations!

A few more examples of his work after the jump.
