We’ve been working with artist and silversmith Miriam Hanid on the redevelopment of her online profile including a new logo, website content and social media strategy.
Read an earlier review of Miriam’s work when it was on show in the Fine Lines exhibition at The Scottish Gallery in 2015. Find out more from her website.
“I use the silversmithing techniques of chasing, repoussé and hand engraving. The fluidity and movement of flowing water inspires my collection of ‘paintings in metal’.
I feel that water is synonymous with nature, human beings and love in all its physical and metaphorical representations. In water there is an endless, never repeating range of forms and patterns, each with its own unique and intricate beauty, giving me an infinite visual language with which to express my ideas.” – Miriam Hanid, 2016
