Futuristic Candle Cars by James Dougall

More information on James Dougall.
Following a successful career in Fine Art and Antiques he has fulfilled a long held ambition to become a Silversmith and Jeweller, graduating with a first class honours degree.
His unusual approach to designing for silver is based on an exploration of shape and form, combined with function in an attempt to find new ways of addressing how the medium is perceived in a rapidly changing world. The objects he makes often incorporate other materials and recent work re-evaluates shagreen and sharkskin for both their durability and decorative merits in a way which enhances the traditional skills he uses to produce work.
James Dougall has won numerous awards and has been exhibited internationally, not least at Goldsmiths Hall, and through these opportunities I have been privileged to study under the world renowned engraver Malcolm Appleby and legendary silversmith Stuart Devlin.
Major works include: a Hanging Pyx for Holy Trinity Church, Cookham, one of only a handful of such objects to be designed for an Anglican setting within the last century.
He’s a member of the UKs foremost association for designer makers in his field, Contemporary British Silversmiths, as well as the Association for Contemporary Jewellery.
