Carolyn Zakarija

"My body of work has an elegant simplicity of form with a tactile twist. I wish for my creative expression to be a part of your personal expression. "

Originally from London, a place with all the stimuli of a major capital city, Zakarija is inspired by her past. She feels that one never forgets one's background; it's the treasure within. As the granddaughter of a silversmith and engineer and the daughter of a true English gardener, Zakarija finds that her love of fauna, flora, and metals comes naturally.

In this body of work, Zakarija explores all the different ways to mill, stamp, forge, fold, and hand fabricate silver and gold without the use of heat. She uses contrasting yet harmonious textures to add warmth to the silver and complement the gold. The forms may repeat, but they also give an abstract interpretation of their origins, whether flora, architecture, or the human form.

Carolyn Zakarija received a BA honors degree in metalwork from Middlesex University in London. She apprenticed with goldsmith John Donald in London before coming to the US. She has been inspired by various workshops as well as places she has traveled, especially Indonesia, Japan, and Central America. She now works and designs out of her studio in Pennsylvania.
