As per our current Database, Laurel Burch died on Sep 13, 2007 (age 61).
She worked as a cook, house cleaner and babysitter in San Francisco during her teenage years.
She began making jewelry and selling it on the streets of San Francisco from tackle boxes. Some local stores began stocking her creations, and a businessman, Shashi Singapuri, took samples of her work to China. She went to China in 1971 and discovered cloisonné, a kind of enamel work, with which she designed paintings and had the designs made into earrings.
With Mr. Singapuri's financial backing manufacturing began. Burch went on to work on cast metals and wood, and to include spinoff products on paper, porcelain and fabric. In 1979, she split with Singapuri, and started Laurel Burch Inc. She was president and chief designer. In the 1990s she licensed her designs to a dozen or so companies that now make and distribute her creations worldwide.
Laurel Burch went on to launch her business, now called Laurel Burch Artworks, in the late 1960s. She began making paintings and was commissioned by restaurants, businesses and private collectors. "I found metal in a junkyard and hammered it out on the back of an old frying pan", she stated during an interview with the Marin Independent Journal in 2005.
She died on September 13, 2007, aged 61, at her home in Novato, California from complications of osteopetrosis, a rare and painful bone disease she had her entire life, suffering more than 100 bone fractures as a result. In addition to Rick Sara, she was survived by her daughter, Aarin; her son, Jay; her sisters, Suzanne Neilson and Jil Chandler; her half-sister Mary Ellen Piraino; her half-brothers William (Bill) Russell Harte, and Brian Lowell Harte; and two granddaughters, Soffiya and Karly.
