When starting A.I, I wanted to be ecologically responsible, with as little impact on the environment as possible.
To this end, I searched for ways to produce items that will not pollute the Earth.
We EXCLUSIVELY use biodegradable
plant-based resins & plastics (PLA), sustainably produced woods, water-based paints and ethically sourced metals. Our packaging is all carboard & recyclable. All my items are 100% vegan, I refuse to use animal based products in my work.
Everything we sell is created in small batches, in one of our workshops in Bedfordshire, UK
I create the jewellery & artworks you will find here, I use a mix of 3D printing, hand sculpting & painting to produce your items.
My Father creates the coffin shelves by hand, from FSC pine & hand paints (or varnishes) them too.
Because of this, no two items can ever be exactly the same, ensuring you are buying a truly unique item.
Hi! I'm Gen & I make most of the things you'll find here (the shelves are made by wonderful father).
I split my time between making things for A.I and being an idiot on the internet & playing horror games.
You can find me most Mondays-Wednesdays on Twitch.
I started Acid Ichor back in late 2016, just after graduating from university. I quickly realised I would not be happy working for someone else, and so I began to think about what really mattered to me, and if I could include this in my work.
I have always been a strong advocate for the Earth & the environment, and I wanted to make sure that anything I did was in no way harmful, and could offer a more sustainable alternative.
I have always enjoyed making jewellery, since a young age - and I spotted a gap in the market for affordable high quality alternative jewellery, and this inspired me to start creating my own.
Technology & gadgets have always fascinated me, and due to chronic illness, I cannot completely rely on my body 100% of the time - so I needed to find a way to be creative, but also easily able to produce enough items to make a living - this is where my beloved 3D printers come in. I digitally design all my resin jewellery, either from scratch or from free-source CT scans of real skulls. I have recently upgraded to resin printers, which has allowed me much more freedom with my designs & I am excited to see what I can now do.
I also have training in metalsmithing, and adore creating traditional jewellery with my alternative twist - you will also find these in my store, but much less frequently as each piece is painstakingly crafted from start to finish to be as perfect as it can be. We are currently in the process of refining our methods of lost-wax casting, and will hopefully soon be able to replicate my resin pieces in metal.
My ultimate goal for A.I is to be able to offer awesome, yet affordable alternative accessories & decor - without damaging the environment and helping other alternative people reach their dreams too.
