The...breaking?...point

I am at that point. The point where the lid to the vial/locket is mocking me, refusing to do what I need it to, and where the to-do list is weighing heavily on my mind. The point where I suddenly fear going into the studio because of the failures that might happen. I know this point well. It's the point that I…

Rosie Godbout - Creating Happiness

For nearly thirty years, I have based my approach on the conviction that clothing is a creation unto itself, one that melds the pictorial and plastic arts with the form and movement of the human body. It is my hope that all of my work…

Waiting, waiting...

It's been a week where I've not been able to proceed as I am waiting for other people to do things, thus Fashion:Victim is waiting for a piece of jet to be carved and Future Legend is waiting for some fresh acrylic enamels to be delivered. Instead of working on those, I've spent the last few days dusting off half-completed projects and finishing them, largely to restock my Etsy shop.



Some of the completed pieces:

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me.

I came across this wonderful quote by Ira Glass today:

 

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not.But your taste, the thing that got you into the…

Influences / Inspirations to Do Creative Work

We all know that working creatively is not like a regular a 9-5 job with an on/off switch. Therefore, I am interested to hear about what you draw from for inspiration. What outside influences (if any) do you allow yourself, is your workspace set up in a specific way that has proven to be helpful for flow of thought/work. Also: What is a hindrance to your creativity ?

What is broken is not lost - Packaging

Artist: Natalia Araya

Sometimes, when something is broken, we take it for granted and decide it doesn't serve its purpose anymore. It just will never be the same again. Even if it's fixed, we are overlooking the immense potential things can have. With this small series, I would like to invite you to think twice next time something (or someone) broken crosses your path.

Horse: Porcelain, sterling silver, watch parts, leather.
