Miriam Hanid

From her studio close to Lowestoft, Miriam produces beautiful silver pieces, which clearly show the influence of water and the effects of water on the design of her work. Her techniques of chasing and repousse, form the silver sheet into deep contours, as the metal is held in soft pitch.
Her work has great fluidity and has a certain “gentleness” about it, both in terms of form and finish. Her “Whirlpool” bowls have been very successful, and her new work including Coriolis and Solaris build on her earlier work. Her newer pieces reinforce her engraving capability- which is excellent. Her work is usually planished with steel hammers to give a finely “dappled” finish.
Her work is already well represented in Public Collections, including the Goldsmiths’ Modern Collection, The V & A and the National Museum of Wales.
