exclusive sales agent
Jenny Kompolt or Jenny K as most people
call her is the hunting and gathering half
of the JunkGirls as well as the artist and designer.
Melissa, her partner is the "queen of everything"
half that make things hum in the background.
Jenny has made quite a name for herself
doing antique shows throughout the West Coast,
and has many admirers who love her work.
She makes art, wall installations, lighting, and
furniture using found and recycled objects.
Since everything she does is with recycled objects
each piece is a one of a kind treasure. Many
items can be reordered but each one will
be a little different. In that category we have
hand crafted using wood "mashers"and various
found objects. Each is unique and holds a quote
or message inside a cookie cutter.
Vintage restaurant silver and procelain hands,
each holds a special object or sentiment. Suitable for
hanging or display using an easel.
"TO RIDE THE SKY"
A very popular piece, the statue was created
using a found toy horse, a horseshoe, a spur
and a glass top typewriter key.
The quote reads "To ride a horse is to ride the sky"
These are created using vintage brass instruments
mouth pieces, band music lyres and other
vintage hardware. Great way to hold a photo,
favorite quote, special note or place cards.
These are hand-crafted using vintage silver
and silver plate teaspoons varying in size.
The smallest are perfect for dog tags
Medium size could be worn as a necklace
or hung around a wine bottle
Christmas ornament or tie on for gift wrap
The large size is made from a tablespoon
or serving spoon and make a nice key ring
These are also available with the word or
words of your chose. The name of your
store or a special event, the ideas are limitless.
The handles of the spoons and other cutlery
are also used. Great for plants
another suggestion for these is to use
for cheese boards and put the different types of cheese.
Lighting is another category
Vintage safety cage pendant lamps, you can
have the cage open or closed
or add a metal plate/hat to add additional interest
Fence wire pendant lamps are created
using spools of fencing wire and vintage hardware.
Since these are made "as found" materials,
each lamp is slightly different in size, shape and color
Here are some other examples of her work
Foundry mold table top on a heavy metal
machine base, right out of the industrial revolution.
Jenny loves to make tables and has a
great eye for the different and unique.
Vintage letterpress type table, using
hundreds of pieces of wood letterpress type from
the 30's-60's. Much of the type was used to
print carnival posters and billboards and
was hand-carved by craftsmen of the day.
The type has been waxed to bring out the
beautiful colors from the various inks.
This is a valve knob table using valves, sprinkler
and faucet knobs welded together on a
cast iron or steel base. Also good for
small end tables.
This is just a small sampling of what is available.
