Snow Business # 2

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
We have had the worst snow for about 20 years this week, so I stayed away from art group. I don’t expect many of the art group would have gone along, as most people drive to the meetings, the roads are covered in ice, and not many of us live within walking distance. With the pavements still under a couple of feet of snow, I didn’t feel particularly safe walking on the road. Having the family at home most of the week wasn’t very conducive to painting, and I had to settle for photography this week, taking a few snaps on shopping trips and so forth. So I’ve got some lovely photos to paint from, when I get chance, which I hope will be soon.
An almost wartime sort of atmosphere has descended on the village. With no post since Monday, we have also had shortages of bread, milk and newspapers (on Tuesday). Thankfully, normal deliveries to the supermarket soon resumed. I put the wheelie bin out more in hope than expectation (people who’ve lived here longer didn’t bother) and I will be trying the same again this week, perhaps with a better outcome.
This week, I am featuring the work of Charlotte Tollyfield, a silversmith. Charlotte is originally from Sheffield, and after studying art in Bucks, returned to Sheffield, where she is based at Persistence Works at the silversmith starter studios. I visited Charlotte during the open studios event a few weeks ago, and was impressed by some silver snowflake Christmas decorations she had made. I bought one but little did I know how fed up of snow I would soon be ….
These small silver and gold bowls also caught my eye. To create the gold finish, the parts of the silver bowl that will stay silver are coated with a resistant substance. The bowls are then electroplated, in a tank with fine particles of gold suspended in a solution all around them. This gives a smoother finish than gold leaf would.

The silversmiths have their own Facebook page at: and this link to Yorkshire Artspace is about starter studios
