For nearly fifty years, Caroline has worked with objects that come into contact with and interact with the body - jewellery, clothing, chairs. Some pieces are intended to be worn and changed through handling. Others explore tensions between structure and surface. Significant elements of her work use historic buildings as both inspiration and location and collaborations with choreographers build intimate and highly charged atmospheres in dance performances.
Caroline has lectured, taught and exhibited widely and her work is represented in many public collections worldwide. A recent book,published by Arnoldsche, and a retrospective exhibition at CODA Museum, Netherlands showcased work spanning four decades. Other acknowledgements include: Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts: Textiles, 1997; Textiles International Open, 2004, and The Goldsmiths Craft & Design Council Lifetime Achievement Award, 2017.
Recently retired as Course Leader, BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins, she is now Professor Emerita there.
