Based in Portland, Oregon, Stephan Alexander comes from a family of artists. His father is a renowned painter and his mother is an abstract artist and a writer. Growing up, Stephan was inspired by his mother’s Architectural Digests, sparking his interest in design at an early age. Stephan launched Sticks & Stones in 2009, and currently balances their design and creative direction. His work is inspired by unusual material combination, the Megafauna, ambient music, and understated design. Stephan plans to expand Sticks & Stones into millinery, furniture design and eye wear.
Sticks & Stones offers the world’s finest natural materials showcased as wearable art. Their pieces speak to the relationship between organic materials.
