Jack Geshel

are a creative duo working in wood, fibers, and beyond. They met on move-in day of their freshman year at The Savannah College of Art and Design. Both graduated with their BFA in 2017, Jack with Photography and Eliza with Fibers. They are now married and living in Lacoste, France for a residency.

Their work nods to the art of simpler times. Hand carved utensils and naturally dyed quilts are among their wares. The earliest forms of art were functional objects, which informs the entirety of their practice. They believe there is innovation and modernism to be found in traditional objects made new, and they are constantly expanding upon traditional forms of craft. Jack and Eliza aim to blur the line between what is art and what is object - bringing the everyday into a realm of finely crafted, artful design.
