Phil is a craftsperson working primarily in cast water-based materials. Phil relocated from New Zealand to the UK in 2009, when he established his London-based studio. He makes a range of objects and commissioned pieces in-house. His objects are often assumed to be made by 3D printing or CNC routing, but they are all handmade. He creates objects whose complex forms belie the hand-made, lo-fi processes by which they are made.
Over the past ten years, his work has garnered international press, awards, and attention. Highlights include the success of my 2012 'Faceture project' that was nominated in the annual 'Designs of the Year' awards at London's Design Museum in 2013, and a Barbican exhibition and residency in 2019. His work features regularly in international publications including ELLE Decoration, Wallpaper*, ICON, Disegno, dezeen.com and huffingtonpost.com.
