Artist list

Linda Brown
In her most recent collection, Linda has developed synclastic and anticlastic metal raising techniques to further elevate her studio practice. Until recently, her anticlastic forming methods have been mainly self-taught, but a trip to Ireland in August 2019 reconnected Linda with her silversmithing teacher Brian Clarke at his Ballinaclash studio, where she studied new styles of metal raising. Motivated by the opportunity to acquire new skills in a region rich with silversmithing history, she returned to her studio in Thunder Bay, Canada, keen to incorporate these newly learned forming techniques into her designs.

This solo exhibition showcases Linda’s latest handmade jewellery and hollowware, produced in .925 sterling silver, .958 Britannia silver, .999 fine silver, copper and bronze. Using hammer texturing and chasing to produce distinct surfaces in the metal, she combines flowing lines with the hollow form to produce organic wearable and sculptural structures.
 

This exhibition is in partnership with DesignTO Festival 2020. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, the festival will be taking over the city of Toronto, Canada from January 17th to 26th, 2020. Each year the festival showcases art and design to the public through a diverse selection of exhibitions, talks and seminars.
