Philip Noakes: Sculptural Silver

Philip Noakes, one of the foremost silversmiths working and teaching in Australia, has dedicated much of the past few years to his passion for silversmithing. Focusing on form and enlivening his work with textures created by hammering, engraving and filing, he has produced a magnificent and varied collection of new hollowware and sculptural objects together with a small collection of jewellery reflecting the hollow forms. This elegant body of work includes over 40 new vessels in sterling silver, Britannia silver, fine silver, heat flamed copper and various carat gold in the largest hollowware exhibition in Western Australia since the 1970s.

Philip Noakes: Sculptural Silver is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
