The Lily Too Shall Function

Studio AHEAD and The Jones Institute present a new exhibition of three Northern Californian artists brought together for the first time: Nathan Lynch (clay), John Gnorski (woodblock, paper), and Jessica Switzer Green (wool). Each artist has a history of being commissioned by design firm Studio AHEAD to create functional pieces for the studio's clients. The result is pieces that not only represent the places where they were made but also the lifestyles and practices of those who made them.

This documentary is about these artists and an addition to the exhibition.
