Artist Statement

Alice is a multi-award-winning jeweller and silversmith who celebrates the chaotic beauty of crystal and mineral formations through the medium of metal.
As a graduate from the world-renowned Glasgow School of Art, Alice trained in both traditional and contemporary fields of metalwork and design. Alice’s work re-imagines rare mineral specimens as functional jewellery and objects, without depleting precious resources. To create these rock-like textures and forms, Alice uses ancient techniques of chasing and repoussé.
Alongside developing this technique, she has spent much time studying the effects of incredible metals, titanium and niobium, that provide bursts of colour to her jewellery designs, using a modern form of anodising. Now acknowledged as her specialism, she is one of only a handful of metalworkers in the UK working with niobium.
From 2020-2021, Alice will be studying at Bishopsland Educational Trust, a prestigious residential course specialising in the ancient crafts of jewellery and silversmithing.
