Footnotes

  • Stuart Devlin AO CMG, was born in Geelong, Australia in 1931. He trained at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and, in 1958, won a number of scholarships including one to study silversmithing under Professor Robert Goodden at the Royal College of Art, London. By 1963, Devlin was respected enough to be asked to design the new Australian decimal coinage. After spending two years in America he returned to Australia. On his return to London, in 1965, Devlin set up a workshop in Clerkenwell and the following year he employed his first craftsman. Devlin created new techniques and produced a wide variety of textures and filigree forms. Between 1975 and 1985, he had a prestigious showroom in Conduit Street London. He was Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths Company 1996 – 97.
