Silver Plated

vase, water jug, water pitcher, gary morga


Silver plated gilding metal.

This project started off with my idea to design and make a double handled water container. But, it developed in to a one handled vase with a strap handle.

The iconography was a consequence of my subconscious and the prototypes in there. It has a feel a bit like a nun’s veil or a monks hood. I did do a through visual research project but that must be after this as I can see no sign of it here.

I made it in gilding metal. It’s hand formed, with a lovely hand planished, dished base, with a thick, square section, inside bazel. It’s beautifully silver soldered, silver plated and a one-off, of course.
