"Engraving is central to my design and art; it is from engraving that my other skills have evolved. I enjoy harnessing other craftsmen skills to extend my own creative theories of form-related goldsmithing techniques."
Malcolm Appleby celebrates over 50 years of engraving and fine metalwork,
making treasured works of art that have proved their value over half a century. Malcolm is known primarily as an engraver and he is considered to be one of the most original and highly skilled craftsmen working in Britain today. His prolific output ranges from sculptural table pieces to small silver buttons. Constant experimentation adds an element of the adventurer to his work, and he moves freely between exquisitely detailed engraving to bold cutting and texturing of metal. Whatever the scale, individuality and vitality of gesture mark each Appleby piece. His career spans 50 years, promoting engraving through his own work and providing opportunities for young engravers and silversmiths.
"I'm passionate about the amount of energy and power that can be got out of the ancient craft of engraving".
"Inspiration comes from the natural world, mythology, a historical scene, even politics, always filtered through his very particular sense of humour." Sarah Drury, The Collector April/May 2006
