MCM: Evelyn Ackerman Woven Art

24Mar12

“We strove to make things we could be proud of in terms of our design and art backgrounds, but that were viable commercially, that people could afford and get pleasure from putting on their walls or their tables.”  Jerome and Evelyn Ackerman met in college, even though they lived just blocks from each other as children.  Once they met, fell in love, and were married the couple opened Jenev studio and began to create pottery and mosaics. Later they moved on to create ERA Industries where Evelyn recalled her enjoyment of weaving while in school and they added wall hanging designs to the line.  It turned out that Evelyn could not handle the demand on her own and skilled weavers were brought in to help.  Below is a sample of her beautiful wall hangings.  pb
