Bryony Knox designs and makes colourful, interactive pieces, covering various scales from kinetic brooches to automated sculptures. Movement is intrinsic to the design and inspiration is derived from sources as wide as Greek myth, vaudeville and circus. She works in silver or copper, brass and steel, utilising their different colour combinations and patination to enhance the richness of the object. Repousse, chasing, fretwork, etching and simple mechanics are the main techniques she employs in her work. Bryony exhibits throughout the UK whilst also undertaking private and public commissions.
At Burnbrae we have converted part of the old mill into a studio which is used for classes in embroidery and textile related subjects.
