Grant McCaig (Silversmithing)Born: 1974
"Working in silver is inspiring and creative, technical and expressive. Using the traditional techniques of the silversmith as my foundation. I build pieces that explore the relationship between functionality and self expression. I want my work to be individual in design and concept and give pleasure to the user. There is something magical about this material. When it arrives in the brown paper and card board packaging, which is promptly unwrapped and examined, a voyage of discovery begins. I have never once looked at a sheet of silver and thought nothing of it. My mind skips to the possibilities and the ideas that I originally purchased the metal for tend to pale in the face of the endless possibilities that lie before me. Soft and rounded, or crisp with sharp edges and plain bold surfaces! Silver, you will find, can do it all." - Grant McCaig
