Robert Welch He trained as a silversmith at the Birmingham School of Art. In the summer of 1953, while a student at the Royal College of Art (1952-5), he won a travelling scholarship to Sweden where he participated in a design course organized by the Swedish Council of Industrial Design. In the following year he went to Norway and worked with the silversmith Theodor Olsen. It was in Scandinavia that the potential of stainless steel as a material was brought to Welch`s attention, and in his final year at the Royal College the topic of his thesis was stainless-steel tableware. In 1955 he was appointed design consultant to J. & J. Wiggin, a small manufacturer of stainless-steel hollow-ware who marketed their products under the name Old Hall, a position he held for the next 25 years. Among Welch`s designs for Old Hall is the `Alveston` cutlery range (1962), which won a Design Council award in 1965. In the same year that Welch joined Old Hall, he established a silversmithing workshop and design practice in an 18th-century mill at Chipping Campden, Glos. Welch`s work in silver, at the heart of the revival of silversmithing, includes a collection of silver for Heal`s and a number of commissions for the Goldsmiths` Company, both of London. His designs for industry include cast-iron and enamel cookware for Carl Prinz of Solingen (1966), the `Serica` range of glass goblets for the Bridge Crystal Glass Co. and lamps for Lumitron Ltd. In 1965 he became the Royal Designer to Industry.
