How hand crafted objects can resonate, rather than represent, storytelling is an underlying research question that is addressed through a continuing practice. This practice has become recognised as a distinctive and innovative example of contemporary craft practice in Scotland, and has been showcased internationally to represent British and newly emergent Scottish cultural identity. This exhibition presented 30 objects, many of which explored the mystical interaction between people and the sea. The objects include animal forms, christening cups, bowls, perfume bottles and wall pieces. Predominantly in silver, pieces often incorporate 18 ct gold and other materials such as resin and semi-precious stones to highlight certain aspects of the designs. The Solo Exhibition arose from the profile gained by the work following Gatt’s selection as one of 20 designer makers chosen by the British Council and the Crafts Council of England to represent contemporary UK practice at the Inhorgenta International Jewellery Exhibition in Munich (Feb 2001).
