A graduate of George Brown College in Toronto, Andrew Goss has been making jewellery and sculpture for more than 30 years. Taking new materials as a challenge, he works in silver, bronze, brass and copper, and has recently added concrete and cellulose acetate to the list.

"I tend to work with simple forms, not just because I like minimilism, but also because simple forms are often evocative and symbolic. I also like non-precious materials because it is the strength of the design and the level of skill that is important -- not the material's value. That's one of the reasons I work in concrete."
