Katja Toporksi

Tacoma Park, MD

Born in Frankfut, Germany, Katja is a jewelry maker, professor, and writer living outside of Washington DC. Her work is informed by philosophical thinking and juxtaposes archetypal objects and elements to explore the limitations of our knowledge of things. Reading (about everything) and writing (about jewelry) continually provide topics she investigates.

Katja's work has been shown in numerous exhibitions across the US as well as internationally.  Highlighted in a number of print and online publications, her work was most recently featured in Art Jewelry Forum's Best Up and Comers at SNAG Boston.
