About Alan Vallis:

Alan studied three dimensional design at Hornsey College of Art in London. After a short period of teaching in a secondary school, which he hated, he was accepted as a technical instructor at the Royal College of Art. During this five-year period he became increasingly enthusiastic about the process of jewellery making which he had nurtured whilst at Hornsey. As a consequence he further developed an interested in the ancient art and history of lost wax casting and began applying these techniques to his work.

Due to the current Corona virus pandemic, my workshop will be closed until further notice. I can still be contacted by: eMail or mobile: 077 65 45 75 99 .
