Flow lines of textured silver wires spring from end to end to create the structure of the domed open-work lid These individually shaped wires, in compound curved lines, are fused together at intervals to shape the distinctive sculptural and tactile form of the oval box. Leaf-like spatial voids between the wires add to a sense of dynamic movement which is at the core of the design concept. The delicate open-work lid, a push fit on the body, is mounted within a substantial supporting rim. This element should be grasped when opening and closing the box lid. Flowing textured wires are shaped and contoured to the profile of the lid curvature, then secured together by stainless steel binding wires prior to the soldering process. There are 100 soldering operations required to complete the project.

DON PORRITT Silver Jug
Height: 23.5cm
Weight: 22 oz

The body of the jug is constructed of two main sections. The front, with its strong curvilinear profiled edge and flowing, wire emphasis - is backed by a repoussé formed rear element. The dynamic wire feature is an essential constructional detail - the repoussé rear section is profiled to fit the front at this juncture - and also fits underneath the wire to guarantee a sound seam between the two body elements. (The flowing shaped wire is not just an applied decorative feature). The handle is hollow and a four piece construction.

CURVILINEAR
A theme based on interpretations of the flow of liquid when poured from a vessel such as a jug, beaker or flagon. Realisation in silver creates sharply modelled curvilinear lines which echo the dynamic quality of the flowing liquid. These undulating forms define the core of the concept and are layered section by section from separate silver profiles
