Karen Wawer – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Karen Wawer

Self-taught; Karen lives by the adage, “see one, do one, teach one” and rose from student to teacher in two years. She loves the process of creation, the attention to detail and the joy of seeing the final result. Her pieces are handcrafted in North Sydney and are inspired by the metal she creates. Forging, fusing, reticulation, and metal clay are used to make one-of-a-kind pieces in both silver and gold.
