Sardi was born in Argentina and was educated at the National University of La Plata, in Argentina, then apprenticed with the sculptor Ennio Iommi. Sardi moved to Miami in 1995, and first took a studio space at the Art Center on Lincoln Road. Later on she moved her studio to Little Haiti.
Sardi has been commissioned for several site specific large scale installations in many of this city’s acclaimed buildings and private homes, including most recently the newly finished Apogee Hollywood condominiums and the Icon Bay project.
She is best known for her wall installations comprised of organic elements cut from steel and aluminum. She plays with the effects of volume, light and shadow, adding to the work another layer of possibilities. In a recent series she uses polished gold, copper, or chrome surfaces, in which the viewers can find their own reflections, thereby introducing a variety of added readings.
Carolina Sardi started designing and making her own line of jewelry toward the end of 2011. This new path taken by the artist is based upon her trademark organic shapes taken from her large scale sculptures and wall installations reduced in scale to delicate wearable art.
Her intricate necklaces and earrings replicate her series of “Constellations” while her rings and pendants are based upon her “Associations” series.
Her series in sterling silver and 18 karat gold are individually hand-crafted in limited editions of 25 while her aluminum bold series are each one of a kind.
