Fredericks and Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. Their collaborative practice has 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 through history and across the earth - they follow these arcs: noses to the ground and mouths agape.
