About Clive Bullivant

Clive studied silversmithing at college and ran a successful award-winning studio until re-training as a teacher in 1988. Running a large faculty allowed him to introduce creative metalwork to the curriculum and sparked his love of pewter. Clive left teaching in 2013 to concentrate on designing and making original pewterware. He designs work that can be made in a school environment and often returns to the classroom to inspire and promote a new generation to understand and work with pewter.

Entry description

Let’s talk

This one-off interpretation of a sharing ‘tazza’, or standing dish, finds the concept of harmony through conversation and discussion as a way to resolve conflict and peacefully co-exist. Designed to be sand cast and fabricated, Let’s talk uses imagery inspired by Picasso’s continuous line drawings to create a rhythm that repeats throughout the piece.
