An artist, full-time jewellery designer; featuring of sculptures in wood, aluminium etchings and installation work.
Growing up with little material resource, Zack was driven to explore material in a different way. Aluminium is one of the most used materials in his practice. Before Aluminium became a quotidian tactile experience in our lives through smart devices, it was consider as an inferior material compared to gold, silver or copper due to its malleability and unstable nature. However these are the attributes Zack sees most apt in creating his work.
