Lobdell finds forms for topics that go unseen. She creates objects that speak to our fears, curiosities, and possibilities; engaging with craft as a tool to span time.

She is a partner in Matter Design, a collaborative studio practice that challenges the default behaviors of contemporary society through its interdisciplinary creative practice, with work featured in Wasserman Projects' Fall 2022 exhibition, Ancient Entanglements.
