Caroline Miller has had magpie tendencies for as long as she can remember. Her draw to bright, metallic objects has led her into the world of jewelry, small object design and sculpture.
As well as studying jewellery in Montevideo, Uruguay and coppersmithing in Mexico, she received a three-year Diploma in Jewellery and Small Object Design from the Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson, BC.
Caroline is inspired by the fast paced drama of city scenes and conversely, quiet moments in nature. Balanced with these flights of fancy are the permanence of geometries, physics and the techniques of a practised silversmith. Her choice of materials incorporate the precious with the semi-precious; gold, silver and gemstones are often combined with found objects, concrete or plastics.
Presently, Caroline is undertaking sculptural studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Utilizing the studios there, she is refining her skills in welding and building sculptural objects on a larger scale. Additionally, she instructs classes on occasion, in the Jewellery Diploma Program at the Vancouver Community College.
Caroline has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants and is committed to strive towards new and fresh approaches to her craft.
She resides in Squamish BC, where she works out of a studio with a view of the Chief and the misty Howe Sound. Her favourite moment of her workday is when her two small daughters make the short walk from the house to the studio, bearing tea and smiles
