We were immensely proud to hold an exclusive interview with founder member of Contemporary British Silversmiths and former Chair, Richard Fox during London Craft Week 2020.
Richard Fox is one of the UK’s leading silversmiths and is currently Prime Warden of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, one of the most prestigious positions in the precious metals industry, as well as being an active member of Contemporary British Silversmiths, serving as Chair from 1999 to 2002. He has been at the forefront of the industry throughout his career, driving it forward and creating unique opportunities to showcase British silver internationally.
As managing director of Fox Silver, he has created work for a huge variety of corporate, public sector, private and motorsports clients, including Downing Street, Lambeth Palace, Bulgari, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Pernod Ricard and F1, to name a very select few.
In this up close and personal interview, silversmith and former Chair of Contemporary British Silversmiths, Angela Cork gave a glimpse into Richard’s career from graduating from the Royal College of Art, to establishing his business and how he helped to found Contemporary British Silversmiths in 1995. The talk explored his design aesthetic, the importance of the hallmark and what has inspired his interest in silver for so many years.
