Rebecca Claire Ford is a sculptural furniture maker and textiles artist born and raised in Rhode Island. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2019 where she found her love of the CNC and grew alongside a truly wonderful family of artists in the Furniture Department.

 

The work she makes surrounds ideas of play, warmth, and home to be interacted with by children and adults alike. Through the imagery and the materials associated with textiles and furniture, she creates work that is whimsical, but also maintains a tone of sophistication.

 

While her work is often sculptural, it also values functionality as she hopes the objects she makes can grow up with the people who choose to bring them into their homes. She is interested in making work that connects people using her personal narrative as a jumping off point, but through interaction with her work creates avenues for people to project their stories and find a moment of comfort or excitement for themselves.
