"Carina Works" is named after the spectacular Carina Nebula in our solar
system where celestial stars are born, a beautiful reminder of the miracle of
creation and the gift that mankind inherited in his ability to bring beauty into
our everyday life.
In 1997, Libby Fenner, an artisan with a degree in music, and Charlie Foster, a
glaze technician and restoration artist, founded Carina Works, Incorporated.
Fenner and Foster became aware of a need for unique contemporary hardware. They
spent several years in R&D to develope a glazing process using enviromentally
friendly components combining original art with a rich durable glass-like glaze
on aluminum.The art and glaze are permanently fused together with the metal.
Armed with endless ideas and a passion to create something beautiful and unique
as well as functional, Carina Works metal cabinet hardware was conceived. After
years of research and development with a huge array of materials, Carina Works
hardware evolved into an extensive and diverse line of "jewelry" for the home.
