Alfred Pain came to designing and silversmithing after a career in commerce and manufacturing; much of which was in architectural ironmongery and metalwork. He trained at the Sir John Cass faculty of London Metropolitan University where he won the Jerwood Prize in Silversmithing. He uses gold, silver, wood, glass, acrylics and steel to create work that is plain and elegant. This variety of materials allows designs to be flexible, and enhances the silver by contrasting colours and textures. He also carries out design only commissions, in precious metals and fine metalwork.
Alfred Pain is a founder member of the Contemporary British Silversmiths and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
