Suzanne Wall


My work comments on the social and historical context of silver through exploring how silver is used and treated in a contemporary society. The expectations we have of silver inspire and intrigue me. What the pieces should be, the function they should perform and the preconceived destination we have for it in our home are all issues explored and questioned in my work.
