Born and raised in the rural Southwest of the United States, Alex Ozer has a natural affinity for texture, grit, and dusty hands. His work is inspired by desolate summers, sun-bleached wood, and watching stucco walls age and crack year after year. That appreciation for a time-worn aesthetic is something he imparts into each piece.
Alex discovered his love of metalsmithing while studying fine art at Arizona State University. Based in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, Alex handcrafts each piece from mixed metals, some with stone accents. Torch fire and patinas give the works an antique presence. Distressed tools create texture to form jewelry designs that feel both contemporary and authentic.
