|Congratulations to Marion, who is one of the selected exhibitors taking part in 100% Proof, an influential touring exhibition curated by Dorothy Hogg MBE, Head of Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art. Marion’s work is represented by a silver vessel form bearing the distinctive surface texture and exquisitely considered gold leaf markings for which her pieces are renowned.
This show highlights the innovation and creativity of over thirty Scottish based jewellers and silversmiths and is a successor to the first 100% Proof, also curated by Dorothy Hogg, which was originally launched in 2001.
“To be asked to invite all the makers I most admire in Scotland….to contribute to an exhibition which will travel the world, is the kind of project close to my heart”
(Dorothy Hogg, 100% Proof Catalogue 2001. Quote from www.craftscotland.org, “News & Events” review.)
The reputation of Scotland’s Jewellers and Silversmiths has been established world-wide; the work shown at the Velvet da Vinci gallery in San Francisco confirms that reputation. Full details on www.velvetdavinci.com
