METALSMITH
Jennifer Mank

My designs are created and fabricated in a small studio space tucked inside an old rehabbed bread factory in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Inspiration comes from twisted fragments of metal re-purposed from the scrap bin, and ideas from free hand sketches accompanied by my favorite music of the moment.

The work is largely abstract, and sometimes unplanned. Ideas evolve in the small snippets of time I steal from daily life. I embrace the uneven edge, the crooked wire and uneven surface; pairs that are alike but unmatched.
