Inspired by the natural world, Ann Chikahisa’s designs celebrate the beauty and grace of natural imperfection. She seeks the unique voice of each stone and metal she uses to create organic shapes with a modern, sophisticated sensibility.
As she says, “Every piece I make is a journey. Imagination shaped by effort. Skill woven with surprise. Structure blessed by form. Metal married to stone. Delight meeting satisfaction. And Joy, always joy. All are part of the process of crafting something beautiful.”
She opened Chikahisa Studio in 2009 and lives and works in Chicago, IL.
