Felix Gill

"I have a quirky sense of humor and a unique way of seeing because of it. I am inspired by nature and the phrase “implied symmetry” the same difference of two leaves, trees, or pair of rocks, by modern architecture with open spaces and closed boxes.

As a maker I am influenced greatly by the process and am very happy to let the making process influence the design process, accidental discoveries along the way will often take me in new and entirely different directions. I enjoy the path as much as the destination, maybe even more so." Felix Gill

Bio 

Gill was born in Auckland, New Zealand, before moving to Newcastle, New South Wales where his father went to art school. Having grown up in a household that was supportive and creative, Gill was encouraged to follow a career in the arts.

In the early 90’s, Gill studied Product Design at the Design Centre Enmore, before completing an advanced diploma in Jewellery and Object Design. Gill continued his study as an undergraduate with the Jewellery and Metal studio at Sydney Collage of the Arts, graduating with first class honours in 2013.

In 2008, Gill exhibited in his first Jewellery Exhibition and since then he has continued to exhibit regularly and in 2012 co-curated The Final Frontier exhibition and has coordinated the JMGA NSW (Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia) Christmas showcase.

In 2012 Gill accepted an exchange scholarship to the Glasgow School of Art.

2014 saw Gill accepting the artist in residency at the Sturt Centre for Australian Craft and Design in the southern highlands of Sydney, presented to him for his entry into the Australian Jewellery Award.

Currently Gill coordinates the communal studios and operations at Gaffa Creative Precinct while continuing his dedication to a studio practice.
