Biography:

He uses a myriad of hammering techniques along with other silversmithing skills to produce functional tableware with strong aesthetic values. He is currently exploring the possibilities tableware without excluding other fields of making.

His work is very labour intensive, adding a certain value to his pieces. He aims to make work that is pleasing to the consumer and has a functional quality. He likes to produce silverware that is going to be used at regular occasions. Phil is inspired by a vast range of subjects, such as fluidity in nature, which inspires the rounded shapes within his work contrasted with the clean rigid lines inspired by contemporary architecture. Mathematics and geometry also play a role within his work as volume is very important when designing vessels.
