Footnotes

  • JENNY EDGE (1953)

    Jenny Edge studied silversmithing and enamelling at the Sir John Cass College, and more recently anticlastic raising with Heikki Seppa and Michael Good in the USA. She has received awards for design, silversmithing, and enamelling from the Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council. Jenny is a short course tutor in anticlastic raising at Birmingham School of Jewellery and West Dean College.

    Anticlastic raising is a metal forming technique which involves forming sheet metal into curved forms, where the dominant perpendicular axes move in opposite directions. In its simplest form this produces a 'saddle-like' structure. This allows the production of flowing forms that would not be possible using traditional raising techniques. Jenny pushes this exciting technique to allow the formation of complex sculptural forms. The inside curves are contrasted either by gilding or by engraving and enamelling.
