Size and fit
Alice Waese: "I like things to be elegant and worn in. Playful and meaningful. I suppose contrast is important."
What is your background?
I grew up in Canada with my dad who is an artist and a computer programer and my stepmother who was a milliner. I studied at various schools; creative writing in Montreal, fashion design in Toronto, and fine art in London. I moved to New York to work with Maria Cornejo at Zero when I was 20. I then moved to London, and then back to New York where I currently live and work.
You studied fine art, how has that informed your jewellery practice?
While studying fine art I spent most of my time making sculpture and textiles. I think these mediums came together to create my current aesthetic. I didn’t study jewelry making so I apply a more sculptural technique to the work. I create very intuitively and allow the piece to tell the story of the process.
