Gill Pottle

Gill Pottle
Wellingborough, Northamptonshire
Gill works in sterling silver, gold and gemstones to create work that is rich in texture, colour and movement. Having received training in traditional methods of hand-crafting both fine and contemporary jewellery, she uses basic hand tools to maximum effect to create her pieces.

Inspiration comes from many different areas: her fascination with repetition (both in form and structure, and in the practice of making); her early learning of textile crafts such as knitting and crochet; her love of Victorian architecture and traditional jewellery techniques such as plique-a-jour enameling and forming/forging with basic tools.
