Alice received her formal education from Swinburne University, completing a Bachelor of Design before spending 8 years working as a textile designer for various Australian brands. After nearly a decade in computer based design, Alice was drawn to the freedom and craftsmanship of sculpting jewellery, which served as a meditative practice to break from her day job.
Inspired by natural patterns & forms in the Australian Landscape, Alice works with the ancient technique of lost wax casting – a process whereby each piece is carved in wax, before being cast in precious metals and then sanded and polished to finish off the piece. This sculptural practice means a great deal of texture can be created to form organic objects that will become modern heirlooms.
All pieces are designed & made in Melbourne from locally sourced materials. With minimizing waste as an important focus, collections are created in small runs with every scrap of metal saved during the working process & melted down to create new works.
