From a young age Carolyn’s father engaged her in woodshop projects that sparked her curiosity for materials, processes, and design. After spending ten years as an architectural designer, she left her desk job and returned to her roots in the workshop. Growing up around the woodlands of eastern Pennsylvania, Carolyn developed a lifelong love of the natural world. This, paired with an urban edginess, defines the Carolyn Keys aesthetic. Carolyn has a strict no-computer ethos. Each piece is hand constructed with care using traditional techniques.
