By 1952 he was lecturing and teaching silversmithing in both Birmingham and Oxford and set up a workshop at his home. Payne & Son of Oxford started retailing his silver and jewellery as well as commissioning pieces for the Oxford Colleges and private collections. In 1972 Payne’s commissioned Hawksley to create a collection of silver for use in Wolfson College, Oxford for their new building which was of a very distinctive design. Hawksley visited the buildings while they were being built and created the collection from his impressions of the new building, which included acid-etched designs from a technique he had pioneered in the 1960’s. In 1981 he exhibited at the Westminster Gallery, Boston, USA and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London have a silver collar he made in the 1960’s. He moved house several times and had lived at Great Rollright, North Oxford and Moreton Hampstead in Devon. He had his workshop at home until he died in 1991. K Sterling Cheques only.
