Experiment with a wide range of mixed metal techniques and processes using wire, sheet or tube as starting points. Learn about the production of silver solders needed for a variety of different solder applications as well as the production of a range of alloys to introduce in your work. Explore how the materials lend themselves to different designs with the option of making a piece of jewellery.
Patrick Davison studied at the Glasgow School of Art and Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence. He has worked for several goldsmiths and at the Royal College of Art. Patrick is a member of the Contemporary British Silversmiths and has won several awards including Best New Design at Goldsmiths Fair 2016.
I hope to encourage students by introducing new techniques to then find their own approach to it.
I like to investigate different ways that metal is used and manipulated but also constructed, investigating or representing the physical building of materials.
