Welfe Bowyer

Welfe Bowyer – 'Drip 02' Pendant, 2024


Welfe Bowyer is an artist based in Mahurangi East, Aotearoa/New Zealand. He began experimenting with jewellery and object design while working in the architecture field in Naarm/Melbourne in 2009, allowing him to conceptualise, experiment and create three-dimensional forms on a scale different from architecture. Although predominantly self-taught, Welfe developed his metalworking, gold and silversmithing skills through courses at Melbourne Polytechnic. His works emphasise form and structure, positive and negative space, unique material combinations, and handmade textures used to manipulate how we perceive an object. Welfe graduated from the Victoria School of Architecture in Te Whanganui-A-Tara/Wellington in 2005, receiving the Dulux Architecture & Design Award in 2004. In 2018, he was a finalist in the Mari Funaki Award with his series ‘2C’ / Twice Cast.
