Karl Mazlo holds a diploma in jewellery art from the Ecole Boulle, and trained with master jewellers for over 10 years. In particular, he was trained by his father, Robert Mazlo, before setting up his own design and jewellery studio. Karl Mazlo has always been passionate about metal, and has been seduced by its many uses. By placing it at the heart of his creations, he replaces the usual focus on precious stones and sublimates metalwork to give value to more perennial materials.
Innovation is being able to cross unrelated craft techniques to create something unexpected.
Somewhere between metalwork and traditional jewellery-making, Karl Mazlo creates new textures by borrowing techniques from various arts and crafts, such as chasing and engraving, and making his own tools to best work the material. His artistic process continues in the creation of miniature objects, made in collaboration with different precious metals, most often inspired by skills imported from Japan. His work also involves enhancing the talismanic side of jewellery, which he develops on bespoke pieces, adjusting the choice of stones and sculptural forms according to the history and sensibility of the customer. He perfects his techniques and enriches his material library as he travels.
