Beaker

Jane Short

This small barrel/tub shaped beaker, in Sterling Silver (925/1000) is carved, engraved and enamelled with a strong design, heavily influenced by a 1966 design by Bridget Riley. Translating the design from a paper illustration to realising that design on a small beaker was a major task, but, as ever, Jane has accomplished this beautifully with all the strength and movement enhanced. The Blue/black enamel with engraving underneath, complimented by the polished silver, makes for a stunning piece. The photographs show the totality of the enamelling around the piece.
