Karen’s designs are all handcrafted in her studio in central Virginia. Her work began as a need to create beautiful, functional objects. A research project on 19th century French silver and the recurrence of ancient motifs greatly influence her work today. Largely self-taught, Karen has taken workshops with noted metal workers in New Mexico and Virginia.
