Desmond Clen-Murphy (1924-2010). He studied with Gerald Benney at Brighton School of Arts and Crafts where they were taught silversmithing by Dunstan Pruden. He established a workshop in Brighton in 1952 and taught at Worthing. In the 1950's gave Benney a hand and also worked with Louis Osman. The majority of his work was made as commissions from the Goldsmiths' Company, Universities, Churches and the Government. His work rarely turns up apart from the Chichester Cathedral goblet he designed for Aurum in 1976 - some of his work can be seen in the Treasury there.
