Detroit natives Jerome and Evelyn Ackerman moved to Los Angeles in 1952 with the goal of producing their own ceramics. “We had very little money, but we had a dream and each other – and a willingness to work hard,” Evelyn said. After founding Jenev Design Studio (“Jenev” is a combination of their first names: “Je” and “Ev”), Jerome spent a year devising shapes, molds and glazes. In 1953, he began slip-casting and firing his creations, with Evelyn decorating some of them. By 1958, they had expanded into mosaics, tapestries, woodcarvings and hardware. The couple eventually stopped producing their award-winning ceramics as Evelyn focused on design and Jerry on sales and management.
