Jaime Jenkins, Pillar (table), 2020

"When I buy a work I don’t really think about where it will go, I know it will fit somewhere, as it is a beautiful piece of art and my house is eclectic, which helps open up a variety of places. Sometimes it might take a little bit of effort to find a place, a bit of shuffling required, especially with larger pieces. I often go around the house holding or placing the work a few times to find that perfect spot...."

"I first saw a Jamie Jenkins' stools while in the foyer of Jhana's gallery (they had sold) but immediately I was smitten. I dont think I’d seen her exhibit before. After I saw her at the gallery I checked her out online and saw her previous exhibitions, which looked awesome.

A number of things draw me into Jaime's works — the main ones being the simplicity of line with her larger pieces and the tones. I haven’t kept up to date with other countries and whether other artists are making this way, but I haven’t seen this in New Zealand. Plus I heard her talk and love the intuitive way she makes her forms. They feel very grounded. In a world saturated with detail and imagery I feel a simplicity and essence in her work, which is hard to achieve. I sometimes work with clay and have also made furniture, so can appreciate how difficult it is to work with large amounts of clay and to make it functional.

When I buy a work I don’t really think about where it will go, I know it will fit somewhere, as it is a beautiful piece of art and my house is eclectic, which helps open up a variety of places. Sometimes it might take a little bit of effort to find a place, a bit of shuffling required, especially with larger pieces. I often go around the house holding or placing the work a few times to find that perfect spot. Or I might place a work somewhere that is easy to start with and where I don’t have to reshuffle. Eventually I'll find a spot where a work will tone with other works in colour and size.

It helps rest the eye when you have more work up, if you get this happening. I often go around the house holding or placing things a few times to get that perfect spot."
