John & Linda Whitney

Since we started creating at the turn of the 1970s all of our work is made from beginning to end by using traditional silversmithing techniques of fabrication. The cut pieces of metal are lovingly shaped over silversmithing stakes and tree stumps with the use of forming and raising hammers. Then the work is assembled with gas soldering torches and silver solder. Depending on the design, we may continue to form with hammers and chasing tools, dap, or corrugate to achieve the desired effect. Natural stone embellishments are added to the designs to give it integrity.

Our studio is a little like stepping back into the pre-industrial age as we only use hand tools with the exceptions of the finishing equipment of tumblers used for deburring and hand operated polishing lathes to get a bright polish or satin finish on the metal. We have even stepped back into the 19th century with the use of a non-toxic mixture of salt and vinegar instead of toxic acids used today.

Our ever bonding love of the plasticity of metal and the joy of creating with our hands is our daily inspiration.
