Artists Statement

 

Aillie Anderson is a Silversmith and Jeweller who graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA Hons with distinction in 2017. Aillie’s work draws inspiration from the built environment around Glasgow, particularly the modern architecture and industrial structures of the city aiming to explore her appreciation of these overlooked details within an urban setting. Through her work she intends to explore the relationship between the physical scale of these existing structures, by reinterpreting them into visually stimulating, silverware and adornment.

Aillie uses a combination of distinctively textured, precise scored silver forms alongside hand cast jesmonite to generate a divergence between material, surface and weight.

Aillie has been awarded a Goldsmiths’ Precious Metal Bursary for a trio of angular silver bowls for her Degree Show collection.
