Kathleen Reilly is a Scottish silversmithing graduate from the Glasgow School of Art. Her work explores expectations of contemporary dining practice, designing and making intriguing and subversive tablewares. Reilly has exhibited and worked internationally and across the UK. She is currently working towards an MA at the Royal College of Art.

Elegant and often witty outcomes hide sometimes ambiguous functions. A diverse range of techniques are used from forging, grinding and spinning in steel and silver to water jet cutting in glass and ceramic. Her work continues to be concerned with manners, aesthetics and hospitality, particularly the interactions occurring between user and object. In reinventing the common place she aims to challenge and transform our experience with sculptural yet functional forms.
