Kinzig Designs combines the talents of Susan Kinzig and her sister Caryn Kinzig. Susan Kinzing can be found designing in her studio in San Francisco. She received her BFA from Kent State University and worked for 7 years as a graphic designer. Combining her knowledge of design with her mechanical ability she began a career as a jewelry designer. Over the last 20 years, Susan has been able to create a successful three-dimensional line that has become her artistic signature.
Building upon her knowledge of metalwork and design, Susan expanded her creative outlook to include lighting. She teamed up with her sister-in-law, Caryn Kinzig, to form Kinzig Design Home. They called upon other artists to blow colorful glass for the lamps. While Susie produces lamps in California, Caryn works on shades in Philadelphia. Caryn received a BA from Brandeis University and an MBA from the Wharton School. After a successful 20 year investment career, Caryn left the corporate world to follow her creative passion.
