Abbott & Elwood
We live and work by the sea and moor outside St Ives in Cornwall. The huge skies over our garden studio give us light and colour and a strong sense of being alive!
We graduated from the Royal College of Art and Middlesex College, creating a studio partnership in 1990. We are interested in metal and metal surface and creating witty objects through unusual juxtapositions of form and material. Our collection of one-off large scale, hand printed metal pieces explores narrative themes, and continues our interest with painted and printed metal and the simple concepts of old tin toys. Our hand printed jewellery and clocks, with bold, sophisticated use of colour and humour, has themes including the garden and the sea.
