James Starr earned his masters degree in metalsmithing from the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
His pieces can be found from the Saarinen house at Cranbrook to homes in New York, California, Chicago, Florida, and throughout the Midwest.
James lost his life suddenly and unexpectedly on December 23, 2018. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
His portfolio of heirlooms will be handed down through the generations along with the story of their maker. His reputation lives on as the man who could make anything... make it into reality... as designed... or per his design... and make it to the highest level possible.
