David Hodge established a Goldsmithing and Jewellery course at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen in 1954 and led the department until he retired in 1975.
Taking the traditional Scottish quaich as his starting point, Hodge has introduced enamel to highlight and bring colour to the design. The corn sheaves recall the familiar sight of golden fields with swaying crops at harvest time.
Much of his work is highly polished, reflecting the light and the shapes around. Hodge has always delighted in contrasting both form and surface decoration, high polish against matte, engraved or chased textures highlighting the plain, and the use of colour.


Presented in 1978 by the Scottish Crafts Consultative Committee.
