About the artists

The creative collaboration between Robin Kranitzky and Kim Overstreet began in 1985. While working together at Miller & Roads department store in Richmond, Virginia, they discovered a mutual interest in ceramics which prompted them to fund a kiln by creating mixed-media jewelry, a venture that then took off. Though their backgrounds differ, they found their skills in window display, sculpture, graphic design and illustration overlapped in interesting ways. And since they are naturally drawn to small-scale worlds, it is not surprising that they melded their skills into a unique singular vision in the form of a brooch. The serendipitous flourishing of their jewelry practice launched a collaborative venture known then as Lost & Found. Over the years Kranitzky-Overstreet jewelry has evolved into intricate, narrative spectacles that are now in several permanent museum collections. Their studio is located in Richmond, Virginia.
