Garden Variety

Jessica Hans & Brendan Timmins
January 9 - February 14, 2016


Scarp is a lot of guessing. 

“Depending on where I start the screws always end up in different places.”

This is the embrace of imperfection with structural stability as a control and an adherence to process. 

This collaboration is the merging of Brendan Timmins' “Scarp” technology with Jessica Hans’ visceral ceramic experience, where the design process is instinctual and freestyle.

Garden Variety describes the usual, the ordinary, the commonplace. Run-of-the-mill and ubiquitous. 

Garden Variety is the uncanny valley of a flower shop presented in a context that is highly aestheticized. 

Turning into Strangeness.
