Here is a Rare and Unusual Container from a truly remarkable Silver smith, Brian Clarke of Ireland. Mr Clarke started running his own Studio in 1973, and began the Irish School of Metalsmithing in 1993. He is devoted to his work. Please google "Brian Clarke Ireland" to learn about this skillful artisan, and his passion for his work.
