About the maker: Phoebe Porter is a Canberra based jewellery maker who's work is strongly influenced by the Bauhaus and Constructivist movements. Her work strives for order and balance, often using a mechanism as a starting point, which then becomes integral to the design.
Phoebe’s technical understanding and refined hand skills are the result of over twenty years of practice, research and development. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Gold and Silversmithing) at ANU, 2001 – under the tutelage of German-born Silversmith, Johannes Kuhnen. Porter then went on to undertake a mentorship with one of Australia’s leading contemporary jewellers, Blanche Tilden. Phoebe has exhibited across Australia as well as in Japan, Germany and the UK and is well known for her thoughtful design and high quality craftsmanship.
