..we are forced to stay away, why not take the time to get closer #CAVABIENALLER
Here is the first of a series of interviews with some of my favorite makers.
MEET COLLAGE CRAFTING
How did you learn your craft?
I studied Industrial Design and I have always loved art so it was kind of natural to mix the technology with the hand made techniques.
I’m pretty structured with my process, I investigate, then after finding the concept I sketch, after finding the idea for the collection I 3D model and the I go to the process of developing the moulds and making the production.
Would you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
I have traces of both, depending on the situation, I could feel very uncomfortable in social situations and want to go run and hide in my workshop, but I’m pretty extroverted when I’m surrounded by clients and other fellow creative minds I feel great and totally comfortable.
If you could not be a maker for some reason what would you be doing?
I would love to work with animals, I think I would love to work in ethical farm
If you won the lottery would you still continue to make stuff and sell it?
YES! Creating is a need for me, is what keeps me balanced in this sometimes crazy world.
What does retirement mean to you? Are you looking forward to a time where you will retire from doing what you do?
For me retirement means to be able to live wherever I want, whenever I want (to eliminate the economical pressure) I don’t think I would quit doing what I do, create is my balance so wherever I would be living when I retire I would for sure be creating.
If you had to choose your animal spirit what would it be?
Wolf! They are strong, they love to live free, they are loyal and they live in packs (families), they protect their pack with their own life. I feel pretty related
I would say mango! I actually have a favourite mix rather than a favourite fruit, so here it goes : mango, honeydew and strawberries!
