Boo&Finni is Just Emerson (Boo) and Jennifer Arnold (Finni). Emerson is originally from Dracut Massachusetts and Jennifer is originally from Jonesboro Arkansas. Emerson and Jen met in graduate school in 2012 where they both received their MFA in Ceramics from Alfred University NYS College of Ceramics.
Boo&Finni started out as a shared sketch book passed back and forth during grad school, with goofy drawings and funny solutions to issues encountered while making sculptures. Over the years Em and Jen have slowly brought their designs and ideas to life as functional sculptures, pottery, jewelry and lamps.
Currently Emerson and Jen are full time ceramic artists and makers, selling online and in person at the Downtown Memphis Farmer's Market and The Cooper Young Farmers Market.
"Our goal as a ceramic collaborative is to push ourselves creatively by constantly challenging and encouraging one another. The best discoveries originate from curiosity and our main objective is to play and get excited about new ideas. We design and produce everything from start to finish in our home studio. We take a handmade approach to kitsch, add a little humor with a touch of taboo subject matter. We like to offer an element of surprise for anyone who decides to take a moment, or invest in one of our pieces. Your curiosity and investigation is what gives our work a platform to express itself."
Thank you for reading and taking a moment to understand our background. Every bit of interest helps us to be full time makers, which isn't always the easiest road to go down. We are able to be full time makers because we are hustling, thrifting, compromising, sacrificing and crafty with our reality continuing to be artists no matter what. We are determined to live and thrive off the work we make and sell. Love B&F
