This is one of two pieces of metalwork donated by The Goodisons through the Art Fund which were originally purchased from the Bishopsland Education Trust.

This was set up in 1993 as a postgraduate course which assists talented silversmiths and jewellers to make the transition from student to professional by providing workshops and training for one year. Pete Stevens was there in 1997-8.The asymmetrical form of Stevens’s copper and white metal vessel is characteristic of his work, which is scarce, because he is no longer a full-time maker. Extract of an article in the 2007 Art Fund Review written by Julia Poole.
