Lecture examines sculptural qualities of silverware

A free lecture on the sculptural qualities of silverware will be given at Temple Newsam House, Leeds, on May 12.

Delivered by James Lomax, a retired curator at Temple Newsam House, the lecture will look at some of Leeds Art Fund’s recent acquisitions in silver including Lord Raby's massive wine cooler; Pierpont Morgan's Elizabethan cup; the James Wyatt ewers and the rococo shell basket.

Their three-dimensional ambitions reflect some of the same qualities of design and craftsmanship found in the work of sculptors and architects.


Silver as Sculpture will take place at Temple Newsam House, Leeds, May 12 from 6pm.
