State of Flux Workshop aspires to act as a conduit to the broader national and global community of contemporary jewellery and object makers by creating connections and engaging with other artists, workshops and galleries as well as hosting exhibitions and artist talks from local, interstate and international artists and makers.

Philip Smith is a fine hand maker of superb stringed instruments and their bows

One of Australia’s finest Luthiers, Philip began his craft of violinmaking over 20 years ago from a Mittenwald trained luthier in Melbourne, Australia, and went on to be mentored at the world renowned Samuel Kolstien and Sons, New York.  Through his superb and considerable body of work – traditional and baroque,  with a focus on both beauty and playability, Philip has established his reputation as a violinmaker of great skill and integrity, in his utter commitment to the sculpture and crafting of his robust, resonant and stunning instruments.

Philip is one of few French-trained Archetiers working in Australia. As a Fellow of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, Philip travelled to France in 2010 to train with master archetier, Jean-Luc Tauziede. As the apprentice to a French Master, Philip can trace his bow-making heritage directly, passed down hand to hand, from the inventor of the modern bow – François Tourte.
