BA(Hons) graduate Anne Davis was recently commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths on behalf of the Salters Company to create work for the visitors prize draw at the ‘Silver with a Pinch of Salt’ exhibition.

'No Cuffs and No Pockets'  is inspired by a 16th century law, that prevented people from stealing the valuable pepper, by hiding it in their clothing. On first sight, Anne’s work comprises of a wooden base that acts as the display holder for the salt cellar and a spoon and it isn’t until further inspection that the pepper is discovered.

The exhibition ‘Silver with a pinch of salt’ opened on the 30th March and runs until the 25th of April in the Goldsmiths Hall, Foster Lane, London.
