Fiona Christeller B.Arch. FNZIA. BAppA.
My main focus is contemporary jewellery and small object making, having graduated BAppA (Applied Visual Arts majoring in contemporary jewellery) from Whitireia NZ.
A major influence in this work is my lifelong career as an architect. It is inspired by current social issues and personal identity. I combine traditional jewellery techniques, precious and architectural materials and an understanding of form and proportion to create small-scale work.
I have been an architect, running my own practice, for over thirty years and have experience in a full range of architectural work from big commercial projects to designing individual items of furniture. I aim to provide high-quality design, while respecting my client’s needs, their budget and the environment.
During 2020 I was honoured for my career achievements. Firstly being one of 5 finalists in the 2020 Architecture+Women Chrystall Excellence Award and secondly being given one of 4 NZIA President’s Awards. Architecture Now
