    Jennifer's work is unlike anything else. Graphical and bold, harmonious and balanced, both an ancient artifact and a modern object at the same time. Her symbol language speaks to me. 💛

    It feels as though I’m wearing a piece of art with jewelry from Musibatty. I’m grateful for artists like Jennifer in this space - with real authenticity and a passion to creating beautiful, yet simplified design. I’m grateful to add another beautiful necklace to my small but growing Musibatty collection. Thank you Jennifer.

My Story

I was born in the mountains outside Mexico City where I grew up among black lava sand dunes in a house with thick adobe walls built by my father. I had a creative childhood. My mother, a textile artist, filled our home with art supplies, and from her I learnt to draw, paint, batik, dye, sew, punch rugs and make jewelry.

As a child, I roamed the countryside looking for pre-Hispanic chards and figurines. Finding a link to the past filled me with wonder, and through my discovery of ceramic fragments I connected with ancient craftspeople. Although never complete, the chards felt strangely whole and self-sufficient, like symbols or visual stand-ins for the people who had made them. Since then, I have longed to find a visual vocabulary of my own that could communicate at a primal level with that part of us that remains constant, regardless of time.

At the start, clay was my preferred medium. I built large, hollow, coil-formed pieces that were unconscious simplifications of objects I encountered in daily life: vessels, buildings, trees and tools. As a silversmith, I continued to explore the same visual language I developed in ceramics, with the added challenge of making wearable pieces. When I draw or paint, my exploration is more graphic.

I continuously revisit self-contained forms in my work. My art speaks of solidity and weight, of rock and mineral associations. Each piece is still and frontal. As I work, I look for balance between positive and negative space so that both coexist. I strive to be as present as I can to each step of the creative process, letting the piece become what it needs to be, understanding the work is not a production, but rather an exploration.

Welcome!

My name is Jennifer, and I am the artist behind MUSIBATTY (pronounced moo-see bah-tee).

I inherited a unique visual and creative language from my parents, which is why I named my creative self in their honor, joining their last names: Musi and Batty. My mother –Julia Batty– is a British-American textile artist. My father –Jorge Musi– is a Mexican-Lebanese architect. MUSIBATTY is a tribute to the rich cultural heritage of my ancestors.

I hand-build all of my jewelry in my studio in Mexico City, using 100% recycled sterling silver recycled from photographic processes.

Thank you for reviewing my shop policies.
