About the Artist

Micah Clasper-Torch is a textile/fiber artist and designer based in Los Angeles, California. Drawing inspiration from her travels, the natural world and architecture, Micah creates small collections and one of a kind pieces that range from functional items like clothing and rugs, to wall hangings and mixed media art.

Micah received her BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and the Politecnic University in Milan, Italy. After 10 years working in the art world and commercial fashion industry in NYC with companies that include Ralph Lauren and Coach, Micah found herself increasingly concerned with the impact of fast fashion on our environment and our culture.

Moving to Los Angeles in 2016, her work shifted towards one of a kind art pieces, with a goal to highlight and elevate what are traditionally seen as "craft" techniques, and merge them into contemporary high fashion and works of art. Her mission is to highlight the inherent value in making things by hand and the importance of keeping traditional techniques alive.
