Sculptural Silver
- Philip Noakes

The true passion of an artist always manifests itself in a finished work and the unique pieces created by Philip Noakes have earned him well-deserved recognition as one of the outstanding contemporary jewellers, goldsmiths and silversmiths working in this country. He has gained an unrivalled reputation as a consummate craftsman and innovative artist, and his work is highly sought after by collectors and galleries, and for exhibitions.

Philip’s creative imagination is reflected in his designs that are influenced by the changing environment in which he finds himself. Like every artist, his practice is forged from a combination of discovered aptitudes and happy accidents; where it starts is often circumstantial but where it finishes is always unique and hard won. This miraculous process conjures up beautiful objects from hollow forms that are transformed into closed containers, bowls that seem to float and lavish sculptural objects, all with elaborate textures created by hammering, oxidising and heat treatments to enliven their surfaces.

This is Philip’s first solo exhibition with Australian Galleries.
