National Museum of Scotland Vase
Sterling Silver, Black Rhodium plating, 2016, Edinburgh.
This piece, commissioned by the P&O Trust, on loan to The National Museum of Scotland, is on permanent display in the new Making & Creating Gallery. Standing at 45cm tall this is one of the largest pieces of work Hamish has created. Using Black Rhodium plating on a polished surface of the hexagonal wire has given the piece a very luxurious yet rugged feel.
