Maker Monday #7 - Erin Lightfoot

We are excited to be stocking the lovely and talented Erin Llightfoot's beautiful porcelain earrings. A little bit deco and ever so classic!

 

YOUR NAME

Erin Lightfoot

o BUSINESS NAME

Erin Lightfoot

o HOW LONG HAS YOUR BUSINESS BEEN GOING?

4 years

o ARE YOU A LONE WOLF OR HAVE STAFF/HELPERS?

There is no way I could do it alone. I get boat-loads of help from my boyfriend, Tang.

Gorgeous deco golden scallop earrings 

o WHAT MAKES YOUR DESIGNS SPECIAL?

They start from a bucket of wet clay and are crafted into crisp, lightweight contemporary earrings. Porcelain is a classic and beautiful material which lends itself to decoration with colour, pattern, lustre and marbling. The process of producing ceramics is slow and tricky but when crafted carefully can look very clean and sophisticated. 

o WHAT HELPS WHEN THE CREATIVE JUICE IS FEELING SLUGGISH?

Just pushing through! I have many times when things aren't working creatively but I find the only way to get through to the other side is to sit there trying out bad ideas until one of them turns into a good one. Going for a walk can also help. 

o IS YOUR WORKSPACE A MESS/ORGANIZED MESS/SUPER TIDY OR…..?

Organized mess unless Tang has been reforming the space in which case it is super tidy. 

o WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN/COLLECTION SO FAR & WHY?

I am very happy with my new marble earrings. The marble slab is enjoyable and satisfying to make and you never quite know how it will look until it has been fired. Once the earrings are polished up into their geometric shapes they look very smart and are lovely to wear.

o DO YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE DESIGNING/CREATING?

I listen to a lot of podcasts and audio-books. Music wise I have been enjoying Wilco, The War on Drugs and Father John Misty.

o PIZZA OR BURGER?

A really good pizza is best but so hard to find that I will go with burger. There are a lot of great burger bars popping up around the place.

o 3 THINGS IN YOUR BAG YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT. 

My bag is not really the glamourous assortment of lady things I'd like it to be. It's more the tissue, pens and receipts collection....so lets go with, money, passport and comb.

o ARE YOU A DESIGN LARK OR OWL?

An owl.

o TODAY I AM MADAME ‘ Procrastination‘ PANTS
