Brett Payne

Brett Payne undertook a Foundation course at Canterbury College of Art in 1977 before going to Sheffield Hallam University where he achieved a BA Hons in Silversmithing and Jewellery in 1981.He opened his own studio and workshop in Sheffield in 1983. He has exhibited widely including the United States, Japan and Europe and commissioned work includes Sheffield City Council, 10 Downing Street and Mappin and Webb.The Silverware and Candlesticks that Brett Payne produces are all individually hot forged, by hand, in Sterling Silver. Traditionally Silversmiths work the metal cold but if treated with respect and great care it can also be worked hot; the art of hot forging silver is not much practiced today but it does have a long tradition. Brett Payne has taken this tradition to a new level, developing the skill of hand forging Silver to explore new applications. His candlesticks are a synthesis of an ancient technique with his own very original and contemporary ideas of form. His understanding of the importance of simplicity leads to a refreshingly direct and uncomplicated way of making that produces timeless classics.We spent many hours manipulating Brett's 'X-Y' candlesticks into varying arrangements. They created such a stir that we are keeping them in stock.
