Inspired by patterns and texture in nature, Alice works with the ancient technique of lost wax casting. A process whereby each piece is carved in wax, cast in precious metals and then sanded and polished to finish the piece. Precious stones are set directly into the wax, making them appear buried deep within the metal and also ensuring they are incredibly secure. This sculptural practice means a great deal of texture can be created to form organic objects that will become modern heirlooms. Alice’s process is of constant experimentation and evolution, in hopes of creating unique pieces that celebrate the marks of the maker. 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.
