I first met Jennifer and saw her work at the ACC show in Baltimore in February where she participated in the Searchlight exhibit which celebrates emerging artists and designers. Jennifer creates one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that combine tradition with experimentation. She encourages people to reconsider their relationship with familiar objects, such as Danish designer Hans Wegner's classic Y-chair which she re-created out of mud. I love her masterfully crafted screens, which could be used as room dividers or sophisticated shelving systems.
