Timo Krapf, a Rochester, NY based jewelry designer, and maker, creates elegant, high-quality jewelry through contemporary and traditional goldsmithing techniques. He specializes in a type of metal forming known as Anticlastic Raising, which he learned during his apprenticeships with Michael Good. Through this technique, Krapf is able to produce exceedingly light, hollow forms with organic, flowing curves. He continues to push the boundaries of this technique in an effort to distinguish himself and his work.
From childhood on, Krapf was inspired by his mother’s goldsmithing studio. He is drawn to simple, pure forms and pieces with graceful, fluid lines and uses the contrast of surface finish and color to create excitement and movement. Timo graduated from the Metals and Jewelry Design BFA program of Rochester Institute of Technology in the spring of 2019. He previously graduated from the Jewelry Arts program at George Brown College in Toronto, ON.
