David Huycke: Risky Business 25 Years of Silver Objects
The Belgian artist David Huycke is one of the most important silversmiths working today. He first made a name with his sets of dishes, simple design and subtle use of materials. Nowadays, he is best known for his innovative approach to the traditional technique of granulation. Huycke sets to work like a scientist or an alchemist, casting seemingly-impossible concepts in moulds, incurring along the way risks such as breakage or collapse.
