Alice Cicolini is a British jewellery designer who draws her inspiration from the sacred architecture and patterns of the Silk Route. Her early work used traditional methods of craftsmanship of meenakari enamel and hand carved stone. Her jewellery explores collaboration and juxtaposition, craftsmanship and heritage, colour and pattern, and has been exhibited at the V&A Museum, Somerset House, and Sotheby’s London among others.
For Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Cicolini has created Totem, a collection inspired by her enduring interest in the work of Ettore Sottsass, and the colours and tones of Eileen Gray’s lacquer screens. Sottsass’ ceramic pieces in particular draw on similar themes of ritual and sacred architecture. Totem comprises playful totemic rings, handcrafted in London in the workshop of one of Hatton Garden’s last pattern makers, and enamelled by one of London finest enamel innovators. The Totem collection is exclusively made for Carpenters Workshop Gallery, in a limited edition of 8.
