J.S. Nero is a furniture maker, sculptor, lighting and decorative object designer from New York City. She began stone sculpting at 16 and continued to sculpt in various mediums into adulthood. Nero apprenticed under a second generation Ed Barnsley furniture maker and focused on traditional veneer work and fine woodworking. In 2012, she began designing her own pieces, diverging from her training completely and returning to a more sculptural based ethos when approaching design. She is interested in the intersection between form and function, never over designing a piece, playing with structural support and spatial dynamics (as is present in the WiVes’) and joining disparate shapes and materials with fluidity.
All materials are sourced and handcrafted in the United States of America
