Chloe Darke

Chloe Darke, at twenty-two, is of the generation fueling the DIY movement, hungry to explore and savor the act of “making”, driven to create. Having studied metalsmithing and jewelry at Maine College of Art, she now produces fine sterling place settings for Old Newbury Crafters in Amesbury, MA, a four hundred year old studio producing hand wrought silver. Chloe is a perfect example of an art student who has utilized her education for her livelihood, an accomplishment that relates directly to her talent and determination. Her daily work reinforces and informs her personal work which centers on the female form and aesthetic.

Chloe Darke is featured in the Forge episode of Craft in America.
