About Fredericks and Mae
Fredericks & Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. The two met through a shared love for materials - Fredericks & Mae started in the piles of feathers, thread, gold and paper that decorated their first studio in 2007. Their collaborative practice has since evolved into a series of objects for the home, garden, and sky. Fredericks & Mae is a material anthropology of objects with confused origins. Tools, games, and rituals trace arcs though history and across the earth - we follow these arcs: nose to the ground and mouths agape.
