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.

While investigating the site and its landscape, three distinct features can be identified, the forest, the river, and the cove. With this in mind, I choose three native species that exist in these three micro-landscapes and designed an architecture that existed in the common space of all three landscapes. While investigating how these layers interacted with each other, the theme of “the edge”  emerged. Fascinated with the layering of the landscape and the edges or thresholds between them, I designed the main lodge to act similar to the landscape, three shells that interact with each other and create thresholds that interact with each program and space.
