Malcolm Appleby is known primarily as an engraver and considered to be one of the most original and highly skilled craftsman working in the UK today.  His outstanding career spans 50 years, promoting engraving through his own work and providing opportunities for young engravers and silversmiths.

In July 2012, The Scottish Gallery hosted Malcolm’s first solo exhibition titled ‘Maker’ which was a celebration of this remarkable talent and the long association the Gallery has enjoyed with Malcolm over the last 3 decades.
