Adrian Hope is a award winning Silversmith working in the Scottish Borders. His work is represented in 10 British museum and public collections.
Adrian Hope’s workshop is in the upper reaches of the Tweed valley. Although the geography appears immutable the signs of mans influence are all around. Field patterns that date back over many thousands of years are overlaid with more recent interventions. 18th and 19th century boundaries and 20th century wheels wear down a 15th century drove road. The remains of medieval dwellings now lie in the shadows of 19th architecture and 20th century forestry.
Adrian Hope’s work builds on a tradition that is as old, that is as overlaid with ambitions and motives, designs, and technologies as all his predecessors and professional kinsmen in his field of Goldsmithing.
