Gerhard Herbst
Metalsmith Artist

Join Gerhard Herbst in the Gallery for a presentation on his work and artistic process.

For over 30 years Gerhard has been creating unique, challenging pieces that consistently redefine the jewellery medium. Gerhard’s innovative jewellery often stretches the boundaries in both function and design. His affinity with, and intuitive understanding of the sculptural form is the feature which is most apparent and influential in his work.
