Timo Krapf, Rochester, New York–based jewelry designer and maker creates works of adornment through contemporary and traditional goldsmithing techniques. Son of internationally known goldsmith Barbara Heinrich, Timo was inspired from early childhood by his mother’s impeccable craftsmanship.
Specializing in a type of metal forming known as Anticlastic Raising, Krapf uses the contrast of surface finish and color to create pieces with elegance and organic movement.
The artist skillfully produces exceedingly light, hollow forms with graceful fluid lines, pushing the boundaries of this technique to distinguish himself and his work.
Timo served apprenticeships with famed anticlastic goldsmith Michael Good and was awarded The Orient Award from the Cultured Pearl Association of America International Pearl Competition, a finalist in the 19th Annual Saul Bell Award, and the Gesswein Award (Canada) For Excellence in Goldsmithing.
