Southern silversmith Kaminer Haislip continues the Charleston tradition of creating heirloom-worthy silver pieces that will live in families for generations. This coffeepot is truly a work of art. It was also a G&G Made in the South Award winner. It is part of a series of design variations on bird forms and entitled “Corresponding to an echo as it travels.” The vessel, formed with traditional silversmithing techniques and fabricated from sheet silver, was based on the shape of a bird’s body and the spout a beak. The handle was created from purple-heart wood laminated with sheet silver for strength.
Here is an excerpt from Garden & Gun about this piece by Haislip: “Inspired by the shape of a bird, Kaminer Haislip’s coffeepot is a utilitarian work of fine art." "I want the pieces to have movement and energy," says Haislip, who melds traditional European silversmith techniques with references to art deco and Scandinavian modern design. Look inside and you’ll see tiny marks left by Haislip’s hammer as she molded thick sheets of silver over a cast-iron form. From the outside, the sculptural qualities that have earned her spots in prestigious national exhibitions, including the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, are equally present. Each piece pounded to life in Haislip’s studio echoes Charleston in the eighteenth century, when the skill of the port city’s silversmiths was legendary.
