LIMITED EDITION - ONLY 10 AVAILABLE
To accompany her work on display at the Bowes Museum, Hannah has created a limited edition run of her solid silver figures; ‘Baby Sapphos’. Only ten are (and will ever be) available.
Inspired by James Pradier’s silver figure of Sappho dating from 1848, these diminutive figures are individually sandcast in solid sterling silver. Hannah took inspiration from fragments of Sappho’s poetry to create a ‘hypothetical’ necklace in the classical style, assembled from chained links from which are suspended these solid silver ‘baby Sapphos'. Each of these ten figures are a finished individual link from the necklace, if the necklace were ever to be made.
Each figure has been individually cast from the original Frozen Charlotte in a handmade single-use sand mould. Each figure will be struck with Hannah’s personal hallmark, and will also be hand-engraved with their series number. They will have a sterling silver pendant bail attached to their feet, so that they can be worn as pendants or pinned to a coat. They are made from solid sterling silver and weigh approx 7g each.
Figure No.1 has already been completed so that example images can be shown in the listings below, but the other 9 will remain in their raw, just-cast state until they have been 'claimed’ by their purchaser. Hannah will then finish the figure to form a continuation of her ‘work-in-progress’ for the #Untitled10 exhibition.
You can see Hannah’s creative and developmental work at the Bowes Museum from 9th November 2018 until 11th January 2019, as well as finding out more about the project and seeing the work of the other 9 artists of #Untitled10.
