Chris Philipson

Studied Silversmithing and Jewellery at Birmingham College of Art and the Royal College. I run a Design Workshop near Knaresborough, with a part time commitment at Harrogate College, teaching Jewellery and Silversmithing. Design work includes a wide range of metalsmithing commissions including Jewellery, Ecclesiastical pieces, Historic restoration work and Architectural items specialising in weather vanes. Recent work concentrates on Gold and Silver Gilt jewellery based on a long interest and understanding of traditional techniques used from the early Bronze age. Looking at surface texture and pattern formed within wrought shapes. Drawing ideas from careful observation and study of landscape and natural form.
