Artist: Alice Biolo

A dark, circular, metal object, standing on a table. Silver needles point from the edge towards the centre of the circle, but fall short, leaving a small gap in the centre. The piece appears dangerous yet contained.

Alice is an artist and jeweller.

Alice’s conceptual, sculptural jewellery practice translates emotional processes into tangible objects. Approaching her practice as she would a therapy journal, Alice uses her creative methods to work through traumatic experiences, and the subsequent stages of understanding that follow. Through designing and making, her projects offer a way to give these distinct stages identity and form. Her pieces create a physical point of connection to private, inner feelings for their wearer, simultaneously making visible and concealing the processes of healing and recovery.
