Our manmade and natural environments provide us with an abundance of distinctive visual effects created from shadows, reflections and illusion. There are countless examples of this wherever we care to look, observe, admire and appreciate. Solid shapes and open structures for instance, with the play of natural or artificial light offer some inspiring visual qualities that enable us to imagine and visualise design opportunities, so this is your challenge.
There is no restriction on what you would like to create and how you wish to interpret this subject in designing an item or product of silversmithing on the theme of either shadows, reflections or illusion, or in any combination. Let your imagination steer you to take an innovative approach as to how you interpret and utilise this theme.
Equally, please also bear in mind that the judges will need to be confident that your proposal can successfully translate into three dimensions as a finished piece of design led silversmithing.
