Michael LloydBorn: 1950
Born in 1950, Michael Lloyd studied at Birmingham and the Royal Colleges of Art.Since the late 1980s he has lived and worked in South West Scotland. Michael describes himself as a compulsive maker. Certainly his beautiful, chased silver and gold vessels illustrate a profound understanding of both material and techniques. Inspired by the natural world, his work becomes, in his own words ‘an act of homage both to our landscape and to our increasingly fragile sense of creativity.’ His commissions include work for York Minster and Lichfield Cathedral.
Public Collections include: Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, London; National Archives of Scotland, Edinburgh; Crafts Council, London; Birmingham City Art Gallery; and Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
Michael Lloyd's solo exhibiton, The Beauty of Rain & Other Cherished Observations, features as part of our programme of Festival exhibitions in August 2016.
