Karina Gill

Conjured and cajoled from cold, hard sheets of metal, Karina Gill’s decorative and intriguingly sensitive work is full of contradictions.

Working  in silver, yet rooted in textile, Karina draws influence from nature’s patterns and organic repetition to create a heavily textured yet delicate surface through the process of acid etching. Playing both with surface and form, Karina’s three dimensional objects seem to magic themselves out of the flat surface. Yet the magic lies in their creation: The single, two dimensional textured sheet of metal, is hand-sculpted, hammered, folded and manipulated to cleverly create a final, geometric bowl, which intrigues us through its apparent solidity and tactile surface.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
