Wood and Wire
Enjoying both the intricacy of wirework and the precision of woodwork, Jennifer Finnigan combines the two in her furniture and accompanying pieces by hand inlaying wire into various hardwoods.
These pieces incorporate mid-century modern design principles including minimalist form and an honest expression of materials. The inlay pattern of each piece develops uniquely, following the natural figuring of the wood grain. The contrast of metal to wood highlights the beauty of each material, the making process and the function of the pieces themselves.
