Fraser was born and raised in the Highlands of Scotland in a small coastal town called Oban. He studied Silversmithing and Jewellery at the Glasgow School of Art and while there he spent a semester at Hiko Mizuno College of Jewellery, Tokyo before moving on to gain his Masters at the Royal College of Art, London.
Influenced by a childhood fascination for pop culture, the cinematic and theatrical, Fraser sets himself at a very tangible starting point. As a teenager he wanted to design and create sets for huge blockbuster movies; the notion being that he'd not only create the magic world of the silver screen but he'd also understand how it all came together. Whilst researching colleges with sculpture courses, Fraser discovered that studying jewellery and silversmithing could provide the skill set that he sought. This would enable him to create items whose construction may bewilder most people. Still with a mindset for the cinematic, he set about achieving finely detailed craft skills.
