Sometimes there are perfect moments in life. For me, such moments are seeing colours and shapes come together in a harmonious whole, making metal flow and transform with fire, suddenly finding a gem while walking in the wild, and catching nature at a rare, fleeting and yet a stunningly magical moment. My passions are colours, shapes, nature and working with metal. 
I've always had a strong interest in natural stones and since I was a child I found Natural History museums as enticing as ice cream shops, and galleries and botanical gardens as magical as fireworks and storms. To this day I love finding natural stones with exceptional patterns and colours, love exploring the colours of nature at its most dramatic and at its most serene.
Here I share my passion. For me, the finding and the creation are the processes which draw me. Once the creation is finished I want each one to have a life of its own, a welcome home and a story which will continue beyond the creation. 
O V Gillies was born not out of a desire to set up an artisan business but out of a desire to share my passion and find a loving home for my creations.
