Kirsten Hunter is a sculptor and jewellery designer. She launched Alius in 2022 with her first collection Botanica. She attended the University of New South Wales, School of Art and Design and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture.
Drawing on her background
in fine arts, each design focuses on the sculptural forms found in nature. Hand
carved elements are balanced with semi-precious stones to create bold and
unique pieces. She creates each piece individually by hand in her studio and
employes a variety of techniques including wax carving, forming, fabrication
and stone setting.
