Merging science and art to create living, changing, plant art

Art of Plants founder Jenny Wong-Stanley is part sculptor, part scientist. Her bent wood sculptures, planters, and home decor reflect a reverence for nature as well as a keen artistic eye – they are at once modern and organic, thoughtful and calculated. Raised in a family with humble means, Jenny learned resourcefulness early, using recycled materials to create artwork and grow her budding creativity. That habit has continued into Jenny’s current work, which frequently incorporates recycled or upcycled materials, scraps, and remnants.

Jenny began her career as a graphic designer, working in the industry for ten years with companies such as Marvel and Entertainment Weekly. After a decade of design, she switched courses to pursue a disparate passion for science. Jenny earned advanced degrees in behavioral neuroscience, ecology, and biology before returning to design. Jenny’s creations for Art of Plants incorporate her passions for science and nature into her work.

Jenny currently creates her bent wood artwork out of a studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn within a creative collective called HotWoodArts.

    When I design a piece of art, it is with a particular plant (s) in mind. I create casings and substrates for optimal survival rate – the plant is always my main focus. It is with this attention to detail that I continue to create living art.

Returns and exchanges
Generally, there are no refunds since all items contain live plants and are guaranteed healthy when they are shipped. If the item(s) has not been delivered to you due to an error on the buyers part, then I will not be able to give a refund. Example is a wrong address.

These are the exceptions for refunds:

1. If the tracking indicates that the post has made a mistake and lost the package, I will provide a full refund minus shipping or replace your order, the choice will be yours.

2. If there is an extended delay in delivery due to an error by the post, and you have lost a plant, I will provide you with another plant free of charge (shipping included) or you can send it back for a full refund minus the shipping cost.

In the end, I want you to be happy with your art piece. If you truly dislike your piece, email me and we will work something out.

All return shipping cost will be the buyers responsibility.

Please pay within three days after purchase. Faster payment means faster shipping for you.
Please keep in mind that all my items are made with living plants. Therefore, I will always ship with two day priority mail and although they may take a day or two longer they plant should be there within five days. In five days, the plants will be o.k. After six days they plants will need to be unpackaged and rehydrated. If you are not available to receive your order please notify me to hold of on shipping until you are guaranteed to receive the package. I would be happy to delay shipping if requested.
