Using personal stories to influence design.
crafted by hand in small batches out of Atlanta, GA.
Born in a small town in Southern Maine, May moved to Brooklyn in 1998 where she lived and worked for 18 years. While her artistic career began with painting and photography over the past decade May has focused primarily on sculpture and jewelry design. Working with mixed metals and textures, May’s work embodies a minimal and modern aesthetic to produce pieces that can be worn anywhere and in any way.
Using her designs as a way to explore the collective and individual experience, May’s work is informed by memory, empathy and insight. Many of her pieces are inspired by a relationship or a moment and use simple elements and symbols to tell a story. Her work is often deeply personal while simultaneously recognizing the interdependent nature of our lives. Her designs are a wearable sculpture, giving form to what we wish to hold close.
See the commissions section for examples of commissioned pieces with detailed descriptions.
