ELIZABETH LENNY


Elizabeth Lenny’s work combines notions of time, place, and material. Many of her pieces are informed by material memories; memories of encounters and interaction with the natural world. Using these memories as a starting point, each piece is then derived from correspondence between herself and the material, following its natural curves, grain, and resistance. These material properties speak of the material’s own memory, telling of its story formation.

Elizabeth’s process relates to traditional craft techniques, primarily using hand tools, to slowly reveal form. The resulting work occupies space between functional object and sculpture, encouraging interaction and use, promoting continuous change over time.
