Originally from Liverpool, Jo has worked for over 20 years as a fashion designer living in London, Melbourne, New York, and Shanghai. Jo graduated from City & Guilds of London Art School in 2023 with a First-Class BA Hons in Historic Woodcarving & Gilding.
Her work is a celebration of craftsmanship and nature. Examining the space between the past and present she creates unique pieces by moving traditional boundaries and exploring contemporary interpretations of historical themes. Trained as a fashion designer and woodcarver, she employs traditional techniques towards the design, application, and finish of every piece.
Working directly across multiple materials from the drawing, modelling, and carving stages, each piece is painstakingly created, manipulated, and sculpted by hand.
Passionate about the environment and social equality, Gorgon uses sustainable practices within the sourcing and making of her pieces and integrates social charitable schemes within her work.
