Olivia Lowe Applied Art
My work explores the relationship between natural objects such as flowers or fruit, and the contrasting qualities of silver, bringing the two together to create a single display piece, where both elements are of equal visual importance.

Artist's Statement:
Designing and working in metal enables me to express my awareness of objects in their environment and the interest I have towards the visual interpretation of objects by people. I enjoy the challenge of finding a new way for silver to fulfil a conventional purpose, by taking a fresh approach to the requirements of a domestic object.In my current work I am finding new forms for vases, by examining the physical requirements of a container for cut flowers and exploring how the form of the container can control or affect the arrangement of the flowers. Rather than the vase merely performing the physical function of containment, the resulting composition is one in which the metal and the flowers combine to form a single, sculptural ‘object of beauty’.
