Kathleen Caricof has gained many accolades for her stone sculpture and reliefs over the years including a ‘Purchase Award’ and ‘Best of Show’ at the 2007 Sculpture at the River Market Invitational in Little Rock, AR.
Her interest in sculpture developed from a background in designing for space. Caricof earned a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from the Art Center College of Design emphasizing in graphic design, packaging, environmental planning and transportation.
Past professional experience has included being an Associate Designer for Schorer & Associates and owner of Caricof-Burns Designs, primarily in the areas of Graphic/Packaging and Interior Design. Specific projects included working with Buckminister Fuller in product design and with PPG Glass in developing a next generation of products.
“Over the years I have found that my art not only reflects my present life content and current moods, but it also, often unconsciously, and with great accuracy, predicts the unknown emotions and challenges that are about to emerge in my future.”
Though primarily interested in stone Caricof also works with multiple materials including steel and glass. Recently she has completed placements on the campus of the University of Denver, each achieved in coordination with an architectural design team and carved on site.
Additional public art placements include for the city of Burbank, CA; the city of Broomfield, CO; and the city of Cerritos, CA. She has placed numerous large-scale sculptures in parks and universities around the country. Current projects are site-specific commissions for the city of Long Beach, CA; and the War Memorial Stadium, Little Rock, AR.
For over 20 years Caricof has carved with sculptors from around the world as a founding instructor at the Marble/Marble Institute of Colorado. She also teaches at the Art Students League in Denver. Since 1996 she has been a member of the National Sculptors’ Guild.
