Neil Adcock graduated from the Wellington School of Design in 1979. He exhibited some of his early works in the National Art Gallery in Wellington and spent many years as a creative director in advertising.
Four years ago he bought some jewellery making tools, set up a workshop and with a little help from YouTube, taught himself all the skills he needed to make his unique style of jewellery.
He quickly gained a dedicated fan base, Lisa Reihana wore a selection of his works as the artist representing New Zealand at the 57th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, Lorde has a piece in her collection and artist Judy Darragh has several in her's. He has sold and exhibited at many acclaimed places such as:
Royal Academy of Arts, London. Maison-galerie 19PaulFort, Paris. Artistar Jewels, Milan. Fingers Contemporary Jewellery Gallery, Auckland. New Zealand Fashion Museum “Moana Currents”.
Hunters and Collectors is very excited to now introduce Neil to our wider audience, with this small custom collection Neil has created for us!
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock. Obsidian is produced when felsic lava extruded from a volcano cools rapidly with minimal crystal growth. It is found in New Zealand as we are such volcanic islands!
