About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Handmade, nature inspired, whimsical.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I wanted to apply my art to everyday objects. Pattern is a recurrent element in my artwork. At the time I was paying close attention to the way things grow in nature when not controlled by man. I wanted to translate this to the floral patterns in the tableware. I also wanted it to have the texture of an etching, add a tactile value to the products.
What makes your product special?
I think the fact that there is not only a functional intention but also an aesthetic intention. My beginnings making functional ceramics are very inspired by the Art and Crafts movement. In the words of William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." That motivation prevails in my creative process and hopefully shows in the product. Also the fact that there is a handmade element that doesn't aim for perfection but rather that each product is a result of human work and struggle.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
All the new unexpected things I have had to learn, and I am still learning, along the process. Many times it is the challenges you face, having to be resourceful and true to your values what makes your work unique and different. Also, one of the most rewarding parts of my work is the contact with customers, the feedback I receive and knowing when the products enter their homes and lives and make them happy.
