Malcolm Appleby turned his Silver Trust commission towards a more peaceful end: the pieces are lavishly engraved. From his workshop, in a converted railway station near Aberdeen, he says, ‘I like to keep my eye on the outside world.’ But he is a far from detached observer; his engravings contain opinions. Appleby trained at four art schools, including the Royal College of Art. Prices for a one-off commission start around £2,000.
