Storai Stanizai

Vocation profile picture

Born in 1992 in Pakistan, Storai comes from an Afghan family with a strong connection to the arts. Initially enrolling in the Miniature Painting and Calligraphy School at the Turquoise Mountain Institute, after four months Storai took the bold decision to switch disciplines and join the Jewellery School. Storai does not see the art forms as mutually exclusive. Her work often combines both media, breaking down the boundaries between them to produce striking contemporary pieces. "In life you must do the things you want" Storai says, "I do not see myself as just a jeweller... I am also an artist."
