I like my work to be, for want of a better word, friendly. The reason for using silver at all is because it is a wonderful, forgiving, pliable material that I can manipulate with complete sympathy. I want the owners and users of my work to enjoy it , so it has to be direct and approachable and tactile.

Adrian McCurdy makes furniture from wood local to the Scottish Borders. Individual designs are created with wide experience using the qualities of carefully selected oak. Designs on seating, tables, boxes and chests combine a sculptural background with structural knowledge.
As a Fine Art graduate I have developed an enthusiasm for leather as it combines beauty with utility. With its natural scarring and irregularities each product is unique and continually develops its own character with every day of use. Each item is designed and cut from high quality vegetable-tan cow hide and coloured suede, the leather is then handcarved, dyed, painted, finished with fixings and fasteners then finally handstitched or laced. I invite custom orders with particular items and ideas in mind.
Sculpture and 2D works using a variety of materials: glass, wood and metal.
I work in steel and create unique sculptures of animals and abstract pieces. Inspiration is drawn from nature, and a fascination for movement, fluidity, lightness and texture. Humour also plays an important part in the creation process, which hopefully is revealed in my work. For me, metal has still an element of surprise and adaptability is crucial. Scale can vary from small items to life-size artwork.
