"Trash, like Beauty, is in the Eye of the Beholder."
Created by artisan Jennifer Utsch, Jendala resulted from making the connection between creativity, the environment and universal growth. Jendala is best explained as being "Jenn's wheel" of existence, making the journey of changing, creating, and reinventing.
This philosophy is enacted on many levels of Jendala's vision and interaction with art, earth, and society. In our work steel cans are salvaged from landfills with efforts from numerous individuals helping to recycle. The manufacture and sale of recycled products crafted from waste materials is a great way to encourage recycling and lengthen landfill life span. Jendala's desire is to encourage a sustainable way of living for ourselves and our environment from what we already have—what we believe is a healthier way of being. The artwork's utility reminds us that the connection between our environment and quality of life is not always obvious and that opportunities for creativity abound.
