Kai Wolter




Kai Wolter is an award-winning object-maker and artist based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He studied metalsmithing and sculpture at both the University of The Arts in Philadelphia and Cranbrook Academy of Art, and has shown in exhibitions around the world. With over 25 years of experience in creating jewelry, sculpture, and functional objects, Kai is still inspired by the immense beauty of the natural world. He is driven by the process of working with materials to transform them into pieces that represent the intersection of the beautiful and grotesque.


“My intent is to create objects through process, intuition and a direct relationship with material that evoke the mystery and sensation of life.”
