Kirsten Kainz

Originally from Chicago, Kirsten was tempted to Montana from Vermont by her boyfriend after receiving her BFA in metal work originally intended for jewelry. She found her creations tended to take place on a much larger scale, and soon trained as a blacksmith to further her vision. Giant and ostentatious, her creations definitely left the realm of jewelry and grew into something far more organic in the Big Sky.
