garden items

Joe and Karen Hart are a husband and wife team who jointly design and craft functional copper for home and garden use. They are mainly self taught artisans and they maintain a studio in their Louisville, KY home. Joe and Karen delight in forming everyday objects into art.


Joe has always been very inventive and does all the mechanical design. Karen is largely responsible for the artistic content of the work. From the first design idea to the finishing touches, they both work on each piece. They take great pride in the quality of their work and continually strive to create elegant, useful home and garden ware that will provide many years of enjoyment.


Works by these artisans can be found at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Berea, KY.
