Victoria Kershaw studied at Liverpool Hope University College where she completed a BA Design degree with a first class (Hons). She then went onto study for an MA at the Royal College of Art and graduated in 2004.
Kershaw produces functional tableware and combines silver with other materials such as concrete and rubber. She produces her work either in small batches or as one-off pieces and undertakes private commissions.
Amongst her designs are the unique ‘Sheffield Star’ silver chip forks (pictured) and ‘Tower of Tarts’ (also pictured), which explore how materials commonly perceived as low value can be incorporated in a unique way, giving them a quality and presence. By combining her techniques she has been able to produce delicate surface textures both in concrete and silver, which make the viewer want to take a closer look.
