Press Release

Now in its 3rd year, Persistence Works again plays host to this annual exhibition of precious metal work created by two young and talented designer silversmiths. This year, part of the city-wide festival of contemporary metalwork and innovation, Galvanize Sheffield 2008, we are proud to present new work by Sarah Denny and Rebecca Joselyn.

Sarah Denny has perfected the traditional skills of hand raising, a technique where the silversmith starts from a flat sheet of silver and hammers this into a bowl form. Sarah creates stunningly beautiful vessel shapes, working the material often into a complex form that seemingly disappears into itself, creating works which are as fascinating to look at as well as into. Her recent piece commissioned by the P&O Makower Trust for the National Museum of Wales is one such an example. Sarah is beginning to make a name for herself and uses this particular exhibition opportunity to create a series of smaller pieces to compliment a large scale work.

“I’m excited about exploring a smaller scale - to take particular elements from a larger work and to really highlight sophisticated and subtle developing form. In carefully laying together a selection of smaller tactile pieces alongside their more complex sister, I think will create a very interesting comparative exhibition.”
