Richard Fox

Richard Fox disliked metalwork at school, but at Hornsey College of Art studying jewellery under Keith Redfern in 1974 was shown 3D design and started silversmithing. He studied under Gerald Benney at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 1981. In 1983 he received his first commission from the Goldsmiths' Company, a pair of 4 branch candelabra - more were to follow. In 1984 he designed and made his first motor racing trophy and he has continued to do work for Bernie Ecclestone since, producing the current Formula One Drivers' World Championship trophy in 1995. He has also produced work for Garrard, Bulgari, 10 Downing Street and even a chalice given to the Pope by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

RICHARD FOX Silver 'ABOVO' Knife & Fork
London 1989

Length knife: 21.5 cm

Stainless steel blade

Richard designed this service as a 7 piece place setting while at the Royal College of Art. Despite orders from leading stores for a stainless steel version, he could not find finance for the tooling, only the production costs. He did make a few sets in silver, one for an experimental auction of contemporary silver in the late 1980's. He was pleased when this achieved £5000 as they normally retailed for about £3000 at the time.

Z RICHARD FOX Silver 'Abovo' Vase
London 1996

Height: 13 cm

This vase is illustrated in my book 'Designer British Silver'.

This vase was an experiment with press forming. Constructed from two spun forms joined by a ring (gilded), the decoration was applied with a tool he had made. Only a very few were produced and one was stolen from the British Crafts Council stand at the Javits Centre in New York.
