Gill Wicks

Making things is in the blood

Gill originally studied a BA Hons in fashion design at Newcastle, where she became interested in the sculptural work of Japanese designer Issey Miyake. After winning several design awards she went on to work for Courtaulds as a designer, and later worked freelance before setting up her own design business . She also spent 14yrs teaching before deciding to pursue her love of three dimensional design through sculpture.

Working mostly in metal and wood or up-cycled materials, designs are created using a constructive approach. Gill's work reflects her love of nature and natural forms. A fascination with the consequences of time and the elements upon materials is evident.
