Moray Gallery

John Z Robinson

I come from Foxton in the Manawatu. I left school at 17 to take up an apprenticeship with K M Wilson Jewellers in Palmerston North.
After completion I worked in a number of unrelated fields before starting at the Dunedin Polytech Art School in the late 1970’s, to study painting. This was a three-year course after which I moved to Kaitangata.
In the mid 1990’s, living back in Dunedin again, my interest in jewellery was re-ignited after a visit to Lure Jewellery Workshop. In 1999 I started my own workshop and painting studio in the same Stuart Street building as Lure.
I am essentially a modernist, in as much as I strive for clean and simple lines. Over-decoration and formality I try to avoid. Gold alloys and sterling silver are my metals of choice.
Casual, comfortable and well-crafted is our motto.
