I am a contemporary silversmith based in Leicester. My work is influenced by my mixed cultural background due to my Indian upbringing in Britain. I have a wide interest in both eastern and western styles of decoration. I am inspired by strong architectural forms and enjoy using architectural details as a basis for decoration in the form of chasing in larger pieces of silver. I like constructing pieces which involve geometry.
Below is a gallery of recent pieces
