BCTF award for excellence in jewellery and silversmithing

Apr '08
At this year's British Craft Trade Fair in Harrogate, the winner of the BJA Award for Excellence in Jewellery and Silversmithing was Ann Marie Colquhoun.

A graduate of Liverpool Hope University, Ann Marie spent 12 months at Bishoplands Workshops near Reading and then, after a period of work experience with two top London silversmiths, attended the Royal College of Arts, from where she graduated with a masters degree in 2007

Ann Marie's collapsible fruit bowl made a big impression on the judges - revealing a high level of craftsmanship and design skill, together with a very innovative solution to an overflowing fruit bowl.

Her jewellery and silverware also features a new technique for applying ceramic transfers to silver. Ann Marie was presented with the winners trophy - a pewter bowl from Sheffield pewterer and silversmith Keith Tyssen.

Ann Marie also received a replica of the bowl to retain - particularly appropriate as Keith was her external assessor at university.
