Carol Talkov works primarily in stone, smalti glass, minerals, and gems. Her inspiration is typically drawn from nature or place. Talkov grew up in Newton, Massachusetts, and studied theatrical design at Boston’s Emerson College and Brandeis University. She relocated to New York City to work as a design professional, creating costumes for theater, dance, opera, and films. A successful business owner and custom interior fabricator, Talkov operated the well-regarded Carol Studios for twenty-seven years in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Her nuanced fabric and drapery sensibilities made her a sought-after design partner and consultant. Her work has been shown in House Beautiful, Southern Accents, and Architectural Digest, among others.
