Alexis Kostuk

« …… Tonight I start teaching at George Brown College which I am really exciting about. I will be teaching a Jewellery Design class » (sept 2010)

Alexis Kostuk works as the manager in the cooperative studio Jewel Envy while maintaining her own business under the name Glaciale.  In January of 2007 she returned to Toronto after attending a one-year intensive jewellery course at Instituto Europeo di Design in Milan, Italy.  She became interested in jewellery while attending Ontario College of Art and Design.
Her work as a goldsmith is frequently informed by her experience in several different artistic mediums; she enjoys the challenge of working with metal intuitively and implementing alternative materials.  She is continually influenced by how people attach memories to objects and trying to objectify memories.
