Silver of the Stars is a collection of contemporary silver that was commissioned by the Incorporaton of Goldsmiths of the City of Edinburgh. For the collection ten international celebrities with Scottish connections were paired with ten of Scotland’s finest silversmiths. Each pair collaborated on the design for a piece of silver using the theme of ‘a drink with a close friend‘ as a starting point. The result was a hugely varied collection of drinking vessels that wereinspired by the different stories each of the celebrities told. Some were based on memories and others were flights of fancy, ranging from Ian Rankin’s memories of childhood fish suppers to Billy Connolly sharing a cup of tea with God!
