Karola Torkos

Karola TorkosBorn in Erfurt, in Germany, Karola Torkos followed an intense artistic training in her home country. From 1994 to 1996, she studied Textile Design at the University of Art and Design in Halle and left the renowned College with pre-diploma to start an internship at a goldsmith’s workshop in her hometown. In 1997, she then returned to her former university to study Jewellery Art and obtained her Diploma in 2002.
After 2 years in Norway she followed an MA course at the Royal College of Art in London and graduated with a Master of Arts from the Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery Department in 2006.
"As a jewellery designer, I am interested in discovering the different and sometimes contrasting aspects of a concept, idea or collection. Therefore, I avoid seeing myself as just a commercial or just an artistic designer working in only one formal language. My current and ongoing project of changeable/variable jewellery offers a huge playground. Giving the wearer the possibility to change the look of a jewelry piece is in some way handing over the last step in the design process. This is a challenge for both the designer and the wearer and it leads to a very personal relationship to design or art.
" After a decade of living, working and teaching in London, Karola returned to her home country and is now based in Luebeck, northern Germany. Her unconventional collections, mixing plastics, silver and gold can be found in major galleries in Europe and America.
