Bryony Knox

For the past 20 years Bryony Knox has worked in many scales and metals - specialising in Chasing and Repousse. She teaches master classes from her studio in Edinburgh as well as a visiting Lecturer. In 2018 she lived as a Victorian silversmith and blacksmith for BBC 2's 'Victorian House of Arts & Crafts'. Bryony trained at Glasgow School of Art and past commissions include objects for J K Rowling & HRH Princess Anne.

Describe your approach to teaching.
I adore the malleability of metal and the history of chasing and repousse and want to spread this love. I teach in a relaxed fashion and am always open to questions and ideas.

What inspires your own work?
My work is based on a love of storytelling, movement and colour. From elegant vessels to boxes with secrets, each individual piece is embellished using the techniques of repousse and chasing.
