Jesse Wallace is based out of Grand Rapids, MI and is working on sculpture and furniture design related projects.





Jesse was educated at the College of Charleston, SC in the Visual arts and Arts MGMT.  He also received several awards from the college in the field of visual arts.  This includes the Best in Show overall, Presidents Award, 2010. As well as, Best in Show sculpture, the previous year. 


After college, he gained employment at a designer lighting factory, where he learned many skills related to non-ferrous metals. He also began building furniture with a table manufacturing company, strengthing his knowledge of woodwork and steel manipulation.
