Georgios Pitsillides Applied Art
My first encounter with metalwork was in Cyprus were I was fortunate enough to gain an inside knowledge of the trade by learning and helping my father, who is a well-established jeweller. Combining the traditional methods used by my father with modern techniques and materials I aim to develop truly contemporary work that displays a unique and futuristic flair. Thus my current volume of work consists of sculptural tableware and outdoor sculptures of elegant simplicity, inspired by the purity of the materials used (aluminium, steel, wood, silver, bronze, plastic and stainless steel) and made using a combination of machined precision and traditional hand skills.

Artist's Statement:
I am a young designer and maker of contemporary minimalist, sculptural silverware. I find my inspiration from nature in particular and enjoy contrasting the more structural with organic, such as flowers, pebbles with structures and buildings. I explore shapes and objects through sketching and modelling, before adding my personal style, to develop the final pieces. My work is hand made and so always unique and the majority of my work takes the unusual form of kinetic silverware, that is the objects themselves may balance or rock. The incorporation of this movement brings life to each individual piece. My design philosophy focuses on simplicity and quality of the line, though the styles of pieces may vary.
