Julie Hamisky is an artist and jewelry maker currently living in Paris, France. The grandaughter to Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne.
Hamisky attended the art conservatories, l?école de direction artistique et d?architecture intérieure ESAG Penninghen and ATEP école d?art et de communication visuelle, before leaving Paris to live in Mexico where she studied with artists James Metcalf and Ana Pellicer. Under their mentorship, Hamisky learned the galvanoplastie technique for which her grandmother Claude Lalanne is famous. She applies the technique to her practice to make jewelry that captures the finest details of the botany she casts with nearly impossible precision. In Mexico, Hamisky met her partner Darius Metcalf, and they began a collaboration that remains central to her practice today. Hamisky moved back to Paris in 1999, where she worked with her father, Kim Hamisky, and Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne until their deaths.
