Narissa Mather, a handmade silver paperknife, Birmingham 1996, ‘NM’ mark for Narissa Mather, 16.8 cm long
Narissa Mather is a BA (Hons), based in Leek. Her current work is inspired by the Victorian Gothic architect William Burges, best known for his work on Cardiff Castle and Castell Coch for the Marquise of Bute. This paperknife represents a relatively early piece in her career and was a one off. To my mind it displays influence of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Josef Hoffmann. SOLD
Narissa Mather undertakes commissions as well as carrying a range of her current silverwares.
