The movement of the melting water of the glacier is captured in Annabel’s signature hand engraving.

About Annabel Hood:
Annabel creates contemporary, simple pieces of silverware that are functional for every day use in the home. Her research led work uses surface decoration; hand engraving, chasing and etching to create conversations about important issues. Annabel’s current work is based on research and designs created over the last 18 months in collaboration with Glaciologist, Professor Peter Neinow at Edinburgh University. Using traditional decorative techniques to reflect the issues surrounding climate change.
Annabel studied Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art. Her graduation show in 2018 named “Touch” received critical acclaim, highlighting issues surrounding visual impairment and non verbal language and won the Incorporation of Scottish Goldsmith’s Student of the Year award. During her time at the ECA she developed her work, focusing on clean design, tactile forms with strong surface textures.
After graduating, Annabel worked for renowned Master Silversmith Dr Malcolm Appleby for a year, developing her hand engraving skills, before setting up her own studio in Edinburgh. Annabel’s work has been exhibited internationally and is held in major private collections worldwide. Her approach has been recognised by a number of industry awards including GCDC (the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars).
Annabel will be demonstrating hand engraving, something of a rare skill (there are only 30 members currently of the hand engravers association in the UK!) Using a graver, a small hand held sharpened point to cut out the surface of the silver, texture and line can be used to create textural designs.
