Philip Noakes is one of Australia’s most respected contemporary jewellers, goldsmiths and silversmiths with a reputation as a consummate and highly original and innovative craftsman. He works in Perth, Western Australia. After studying at the prestigious Sir John Cass College of Art in London and gaining a Diploma in the Design and Craftsmanship of Silversmithing, Philip travelled to Australia in 1975 and quickly established his enviable reputation. Philip’s passion is silversmithing, and his technical knowledge and expertise enable him to explore ideas that play with variations on classical forms, different textures, surface treatments and techniques. His dedication and outstanding work were recognised when he was conferred as a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths, United Kingdom, in 2016, making him only one of 170 recipients worldwide and the only silversmith in Australia.
