An antated inventory of works by architectural sculptor Walter Gilbert and associates
Phillip Medhurst was born in Leicester, England in 1948. Educated at Alderman Newton's Grammar School, he won an open scholarship to read English at Wadham College, Oxford. After graduation he trained for the Anglican ministry. On ordination he served in a South London parish while qualifying as a schoolteacher at Goldsmiths' College. For ten years Phillip pursued a career as a teacher in holy orders in both state-funded and private schools. After a brief spell as a chaplain at Malvern College, Phillip was received into the Catholic Church (as a layman, with his wife and two children) in 1988. He then spent another decade supervising the religious life of Catholic Schools in the West Midlands before retiring from schoolteaching to devote his time entirely to writing and fine art. Phillip is the authority on Walter Gilbert. His own most well-known artworks are The Genesis Sequence and In Memoriam Robert Ujj. He currently divides his time between homes in Kidderminster and Rochdale.
