Artist list

Paul Derrez
Paul Derrez continuous to be fascinated by the infinite possibilities small silverware presents. With functionality as an excuse, the true Decorative Arts are produced... He forges fine silver plate into a box, beaker, dish or bowl and then adds a lid, foot or handle – often in a contrasting and colourful material such as plastics like acrylic and galalith, or with a contrasting form like wire frames. Much attention is also given to the finish of the surface: smooth or hammered, highly polished or sanded matte, boiled white or oxidised grey. Paul prefers pure, robust forms which even though relatively small have a monumental effect. Studying traditional basket weave has now inspired him to use more organic accents. To what extent can a handle be both functional yet exquisite?
