SIDE x SIDE: EDGE > EDGE at the Royal Cornwall Museum – 18 September – 6 November 2010
Our exciting, groundbreaking exhibition of silverware is to be staged at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro – its first UK venue.
“We feel extremely privileged to be providing the first UK venue for SIDE x SIDE: EDGE > EDGE,” said Hilary Bracegirdle, Director of the Royal Cornwall Museum. “It is an exceptional collection of modern silverware that attracted large numbers of visitors when it was shown in Finland. We expect similar levels of interest here.”
The exhibition is the result of our group’s first ever collaboration with the Finnish Silversmiths Association and students and staff at the Lahti University of Applied Sciences Institute of Design in Finland. Seventy five pieces of new work are featured – all made in response to the themed title.
SIDE x SIDE: EDGE > EDGE was first shown in Finland in the summer of 2009. This is your opportunity to see how 75 different makers responded to the theme each in their own unique way.
A full gallery of the work and further details can be viewed here.
The exhibition was generously sponsored by the Finnish silver manufacturer Kultakeskus Oy, who supplied 1kg of silver to each participant, and by Goldsmiths’ Company.
