Alexandra Lozier is a metal and glass artist currently working and residing in Brooklyn, NY. Inspired by the natural landscape, she collects, composes, and encapsulates organic found objects in metal and glass as both wearable pieces of jewelry and sculpture. Her work analyzes the ephemeral in an attempt to preserve it. In January 2012, she opened her own silversmithing/jewelry studio, Touch of Gray. The studio serves several functions: it is her home base where she creates her own artwork, as well as fabricates jewelry for established artists and designers. In addition, the studio is a communal space; providing emerging jewelry artists the necessary tools and equipment to make their work in a creative atmosphere. Alexandra also works at Brooklyn Glass as a studio technician and glassblowing instructor. She graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA in 2010 with a BFA in Crafts, concentration in metals and glass.

She has received scholarships to attend Pilchuck Glass School, Pittsburgh Glass Center, and the Glass Art Society Conference in Louisville, KY. She recently showed her work at Nature in Craft at the Wayne Art Center, S.O.F.A. (Sculptural Objects Functional Art) Chicago, and The Ukrainian Museum in New York, NY.
