Silver Grain

Silver Grain; was a collaboration project combining the talents of Silversmith Sarah Cave and woodworker and pyrography designer Kirsty Dalton. Working purely in traditional craft both designers combine their skill sets to create a limited series of unique and exquisite pieces, for a one-off exhibition - "Silver Grain".

Sarah Cave is a silversmith, graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1995, Sarah went on to work with Hamilton and Inches in Edinburgh before focusing primarily on her own work. In 2018 she opened a shop and studio space in Blairgowrie called ‘Sarah Cave Silversmith’. Kirsty Dalton graduated in 2015 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee and specialises in woodwork. Dalton sources her wood locally and uses a process called pyrography, which involves burning the wood freehand, to create instinctive and natural patterns onto the wood.

The exhibition took place over Perth Open Studios 2019 – The work was exhibited in 'Sarah Cave Silversmith' - shop in Blairgowrie, Perth Scotland. Their collaboration included jewellery and homeware with a focus on serving platters for tapas and whiskeys. It was a first-time collaboration for both designers and each piece has been individually handcrafted by both Sarah and Kirsty.
