SOPHIE GLENN

RUST NEVER SLEEPS

“I want my designs to challenge what makes furniture recognizable. I employ traditional furniture forms and methods of making but make slight alterationsor integrate contrasting elements that promote user engagement and investigation.”

–SOPHIE GLENN

Sophie Glenn is a furniture maker and metal worker from New York City, NY. She received her MFA in Furniture Design and Woodworking from San Diego State University (San Diego, CA) in 2017 and has worked as a metal fabricator and welder for independent businesses across the country. In her series, “Rust Never Sleeps,” Sophie challenges traditional norms in furniture making through her use of material and color. Designs, which appear at first to be made of wood, are revealed to be fabricated in steel. Sophie’s work charges the audience to abandon our preconceived notions and to look more closely before drawing conclusions.
