Marie Suri


Combining fine jewelry-making techniques and metalsmithing, Marie Suri uses materials typically found in industrial settings to fabricate items of unique beauty. Wielding torches that are 1200 degrees in a physically demanding process, she uses steel, copper, brass and bronze to produce finely crafted pieces that celebrate the contrast between the airy delicacy of her designs and the strength and durability of the raw material. 


A significant part of Marie’s collection celebrates the use of recycled materials. Her signature medallion designs feature steel motor components found at a local salvage yard, and she continues to design pieces using reclaimed metals. 


All Marie Suri pieces are hand crafted. She designs and finishes her work in a home studio in Darien, Conn., with welding and construction taking place in a workshop over the border in New Rochelle, New York. 


Interior designers Shawn Henderson, Alex Papachristidis, Philip Gorrivan, Jeffrey Bilhuber and Heather Hilliard have incorporated Marie Suri pieces in their projects, including showcase houses in San Francisco, Philadelphia and New York.


“Sculpting in metal has taught me to blend creativity with functionality,” says Marie. “I start with an idea and then begin laying out steel bars and metal pieces on the floor of my studio. I move things around until my design starts to take shape. Each work, whether it be a mirror, wall hanging or table, I consider a canvas—a three dimensional canvas." 


A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Marie started working in metal sculpture at the Silvermine School of Art in Connecticut and studied jewelry design at The New School in New York.
