About Shalini Austin

I am a self taught metalsmith and I make Copper Things. Originally from New Delhi, India I now live in Stamford, Lincolnshire with my husband and 2 rescue dogs. It started as a hobby in 2008, making wire jewellery. As I progressed on my creative journey I learnt to appreciate sheet metal, especially copper. So it is only natural that my work is now taking a new path in fabricating metal. Since Summer 2014 I have been working mainly with sheet copper, crafting a decorative and functional range of copper jewellery, home-ware and sculptures.  I love working with sheet metal and creating interesting 3D forms and shapes, often using nothing more than a simple hammer to create textures. Recently I have also started kiln fired enamelling, which has proven very popular, especially with jewellery customers.

Copper Bowl RUFFLES

Antique Finish Copper Bowl, forged by hand using a couple of hammers and copper sheet. The ruffled edges of this bowl make it look like a flower.

I am really pleased that I was able to achieve this result and look on my very first attempt at making a deep bowl in this style. I have made small copper trays with ruffled edges before but not a deeper bowl like this one.
