Jennifer Rong Designs specializes in one-of-a-kind, handmade, upcycled pieces made primarily from reclaimed wood, vintage items and found objects. Emphasis is on aesthetics, function and sustainable production. Drawing on the practice of ‘nose to tail’ eating, everything is used, nothing is wasted.
Bark is an exploration of tree bark as a medium for producing both functional and sculptural pieces. With an emphasis on aesthetics and sustainable production, these pieces incorporate found/repurposed material to realize the bark’s full potential. Bark comes in various forms, some very durable when found in the right conditions while others can be fragile. Bark has been incorporated into these pieces to showcase both its fragility and strength, serving as wall décor, seating and lighting. Everything is made with bark.
