JULIAN CROSS (b.1955)
Julian Cross was born in Harrow. With no formal training as an artist he instead taught himself as a painter, sculptor and silversmith. Julian came to silversmithing, first focusing his artistic talents as a painter before rediscovered the art of modelling. This resulted in the production of a series of small sculptures and jewellery in silver.
In 1990 Julian first entered the Goldsmiths’ Craft Council Annual Craftsmanship and Design Awards. In 1992 he was awarded first prize in the modellers’ section. This led to a commission from the Goldsmiths’ Company for the Prime Warden’s Medal for Lord Nelson of Stafford. Julian was also commissioned to produce a medal for the British Art Medal Society in 1992.
