Pamela Rawnsley

7 February – 12 April 2015

1952 – 2014

Landscape has been a constant obsession in Pamela Rawnsley’s life and in her work. Exploration was key to her progress; through material manipulation, print and drawing she pushed boundaries. Pamela’s work is internationally respected and is in many private and public collections including National Museum Wales, The Goldsmiths’ Company, V&A Museum, Aberdeen Art Gallery, National Museum Ulster. As the Arts Council of Wales noted, ‘A leading silversmith and artist, passing in her prime … robbed Wales of one of its finest makers of recent times.’ The new work, begun during her Creative Wales Ambassador Australian residency, is exceptional.

Publications Pamela Rawnsley 1952–2014

This publication is a celebration of the life’s work of silversmith Pamela Rawnsley. From her early jewellery pieces through to her renowned ‘Vessel Sequences’ and more recent work of brooches and collagraphs inspired by her 2012 residency in Australia. Her contribution to contemporary silversmithing is substantial.

This publication also comes with a 14 page insert: echoes, from friends, makers, artists and collectors, a touching collection of tributes and memories to Pamela.
