Bradford based Bullion Company Fowler Oldfield has generously agreed to support the commissions, supplying the silver required to make the two pieces. The commissions have already been designed and awaiting the making process. Fenella Watson and Nina Rithalia of the Starter Studio Programme are based at Yorkshire Artspace and will be working tremendously hard to get the pieces ready for April. The two commissions will go on display in the foyer of Museums Sheffield, Millennium Galleries.

Assay Master, Ashley Carson is delighted with the new sponsor coming on board. “It is always great news to find a company willing to support new up and coming silversmiths and supporting the industry” 

Greg Frankel, Director of Fowler Oldfield said “The Precious Little Gems are an amazing collection of contemporary designs; we as a company are delighted to support the production of this year’s commissions.
