A survey of a thirty five year career of German born, UK based  silversmith Simone ten Hompel.   Jerwood award winning ten Hompel has worked with independent curator Amanda Game to bring together domestic objects, sculpture, images, models and photographs to trace her exceptional work as designer, maker, teacher and curator in the field of contemporary metal design. Produced by Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales this touring show includes a newly commissioned film collaboration directed by Jarman Award shortlisted artist filmmaker Matt Hulse. Ten Hompel had her first solo show in Scotland in 1995 at the Scottish Gallery and has taught at both Glasgow School of Art and Edinburgh College of Art.  She is peer-reviewed as the most inventive silversmith of her generation, overcoming severe undiagnosed dyslexia as a child to develop her own ‘language of metal’.   She has designed for Indian company Ravissant and has work in over twenty public collections internationally including V & A and National Museums Scotland.
