Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Katja Toporski is a jewelry maker, professor and writer living just 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. It has been shown in numerous exhibitions across the US as well as internationally and has been highlighted in a number of print and online publications, most recently in the 2016 edition of Exhibition in Print by Metalsmith Magazine. Reading (about everything) and writing (about jewelry) continually provide the topics she investigates in her work.
