Ross Morrow Silversmith

Classically trained in Ireland, Ross Morrow is a master silversmith who creates one of a kind works of art. All of his pieces are hand raised and hand hammered in the traditional style, some of them taking up to 200 hours to complete. Ross’ works are owned by both private collectors and museums from Japan to Istanbul, most notably in the Victoria and Albert Museum in England. Several of Ross’ pieces have been included in sales of Post 1945 / Contemporary Silver by Bonham’s in London, England, and recent commissions include a silver presentation box now in a Royal collection in England.

His innovative designs have won him several awards, including “Best Holloware” (2002) and “Best Design” (2000), both from the Metal Arts Guild. Ross has served as President of the Metal Arts Guild. Ross shows a unique passion for his work. He is known for his technically challenging and unique pieces. Apart from creating in his studio, Ross has shared his knowledge, teaching at George Brown College, Georgian College and the Ontario College of Art and Design.

His works have also been included in the books, “Teapots, Makers and Collectors,” and “Contemporary Silver, Part II, Recent Commissions.” Ross was featured by the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts in their Spring, 2008 publication, “Ornamentum.”

In May 2017, J.H. Tee Antiques in Vancouver will be hosting a one man exhibition of Ross’ most recent works. Ross now lives and works in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.
