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.

a study of seating

ongoing


Here, the base of the seat is the width of the tree that the wood comes from. This reminds us of the source of the material, of the tree’s mass and vitality.

Aluminum cuts into the log, creating the back and seat, wedging itself into the material.
