Bramble Lee Pryde of LE LOU ULA
Bramble Lee Pryde is a multidisciplinary artist, currently working under the moniker LE LOU ULA (formerly WOLF + SADIE). Founded in 2013 Pryde has since created an atelier collection of surroundings and wares that include: jewelry & adornments, art & illustration and ceramics & home accoutrements.
Pryde explores these concepts while adhering to a slow design ethos and was recently listed as one of the 10 international designers that are "refining the notions of dark fashion” by Paper Magazine. She found her way to metal-smithing while traveling abroad after completing her post-secondary education; starting with her foundation year of Fine Arts at OUC, and finishing up in Vancouver with her diploma in Design + Formation from Langara College, a program that merges the design disciplines of spatial formation and communication design by bridging architecture, industrial and graphic design.
While traveling through South Asia, she discovered the vital role of adornment in the stories people tell about their culture. This led to returning to Australia, where Pryde specialized further by earning her diploma in Metalsmithing from TAFE, in Perth.
She currently resides in the Pacific Northwest, where she combines her practices as a resident artist at Ellis Art Studios.
