Graham Stewart was a designer, gold and silversmith who ran his workshop and gallery in Dunblane, Scotland since 1978. Working along with his small team of skilled and long established craftsmen, he produced innovative, clean-lined, sculptural pieces of silver from high profile commemorative presentation pieces to fine quality functional silver. The silver was produced using traditional techniques such as raising, spinning, cold forging, planishing, and chasing. Graham specialised in fine hand-cut engraving. He also designed and made a small range of fine jewellery.
