We are delighted to announce that the next Maker in Focus, SITSelect’s partnership with the very lovely Guild at 51, will feature silversmith Juliette Bigley. Working in silver and base metals, her work is both sculptural and functional and involves creating relationships within the piece, between the pieces and between the pieces and the viewer.

In her artist’s statement, Juliette writes that ‘our lives are brightened and coloured by the objects with which we surround ourselves.’ That is certainly true of her fascinating vessels.

Below is a selection of images but to appreciate this work fully, head for the Guild at 51 between October 28th and November 30th.

Guild at 51, 51 Clarence St, Cheltenham GL50 3JT, 01242 245215; http://guildcrafts.org.uk/the-guild-at-51-cheltenham/ Open Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 5pm
