Max Warren Lives and Works in London. He studied BA Wood, Metal, Ceramics & Plastics at the University of Brighton before a year long silversmithing residency at Bishopsland Educational Trust. This was followed by an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery at The Royal College of Art, graduating in 2009.
Warren employs ancient craft techniques such as hand engraving and forging to create contemporary objects in metal. The works are informed by digital culture but created entirely with traditional hand-making processes. Alongside his studio practice Warren also works as a Senior Lecturer for BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins College in London.
Pieces have been acquired for several public and private collections, including The Victoria & Albert Museum London, The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, The Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge and The Royal College of Art. Recent exhibitions include: Shelf Life Vitsoe Munich, The Silversmiths’ Art National Museum of Scotland Edinburgh, The Digital Soane Sir John Soanes Museum London, Passing It On The Scottish Gallery Edinburgh, Collect Saatchi Gallery London & Fix Fix Fix Gallery SO London.
