German American artist Stephie Kaiser Harvel, whose atelier is based in Dallas, TX, designs and handcrafts her unique and bespoke "wearable" metal art, and renders large-scale abstract paintings on wood and canvas. Kaiser Harvel’s pieces have presence—sculptural and geometrical shape, tangible weight, and beauty in form. Her wearable precious metal artwork is handcrafted using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. And while the craftsmanship may be Old World, the inspirations bring contemporary spirit. Everything from fine art to architecture, sculpture, history, nature, and psychology animate the stories behind each of her pieces. Her jewelry's moniker—coming from Stephie's mother's maiden name, Kaiser—is a nod to her deep Lower-Saxony German roots and the country’s reputation for fine craftsmanship.
Stephie is currently earning her Doctorate in Liberal Studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX.
