Carol and Jean-Pierre Hsu have worked together as Hsu Studios for almost four decades. Since 1975, we have lived and worked in Berkeley Springs, W.V. At that time we established two working studios, one for jewelry and one for clay. We merged our talents together as Hsu Studios in 1984 to create aerodynamic mobiles and eclectic, colorful jewelry in anodized aluminum. Wall pieces and sculpture are also part of our repertoire. Sometimes we mix the aluminum with found materials.
Aluminum is one of the most ubiquitous materials in the world, and is used in almost every industry. We enjoy the challenge of creating uncommon works of art for everyday use with a common material.
We are inspired to design enduring, vibrant artworks that transcend traditional form and complement everyone’s environment. Change is always important to us in our artistic endeavors; we continually explore new possibilities of design and technique, and have expanded from the small scale of jewelry to much more voluminous mobiles and sculpture.
