The Bean behind the scenes

AJ is a multidisciplinary artist creating work primarily in clay. First and foremost they identify as a storyteller, using any medium that curiosity and functionality leads them to. Their functional work largely features motifs of nature and nostalgia, marrying images of flora and fauna from their childhood as well as things that fascinate them to this day. Excited by the softness of nature as well as the brutality, AJ’s work frequently plays with things that they are afraid of or made uncomfortable by, constantly challenging their own ideas around safety and coziness. Snakes and destructive beetles juxtaposed by silly situations and host plants respectively create balanced narratives, lending a softness to otherwise creepy crawlies.

Why does my order look a lil different than the picture I saw on the website?
