Elizabeth Lenny



Elizabeth Lenny’s work combines notions of time, process, and material. Each piece is derived from correspondence between herself and the material, following natural curves, grain, and resistance. These followed material properties tell the story of the material and its becoming.


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.

Part of an ongoing investigation into the carving of wood as a methodology, how curves reveal grain, the mark of the hand of the maker, and the mass of wood.
