We’re big fans of Sam - known as The Soda Fountain. She makes beautiful, playful ceramics. One of our most recent additions to the Showroom was a checkered vase that she made for us. Read through our interview with Sam below to discover her latest obsessions…
I’m obsessed with listening to
The silence of the world on my balcony and the wind blowing through the trees and the bees flying around and landing on flowers. Literally, my favourite soundtrack. Otherwise, a playlist that I can dance to.
I’m obsessed with creating
My ceramics. I love getting lost in sculpting things with my hands and then painting my little squares. I do miss having the time to paint on canvas though but that will happen soon.
I’m obsessed with reading
I love a good novel - fantasy/fiction is my jam because I need to get lost in another lifetime when this world becomes too harsh for me. I am a dreamer, true and through.
I’m obsessed with the art of
Salvador Dali, Cy Twombly, Picasso, Andy Warhol, Basquiat, Louis Bourgeois, Raphael, Michaelangelo, Ruth Asawa etc, etc.
I’m obsessed with the photography of
My dear friend, Phillip Huynh is a genius behind the lens. Guy Bourdain was incredible. Mapplethorpe, Twombly, Andy Warhol. Just LOVE.
I’m obsessed with wearing
Comfortable pieces that bring me joy and make me feel like myself on whichever day that particular outfit is me. I have many outfits that suit different moods.
I’m obsessed with helping/doing my part in
Helping my dear friend, Nic Dowse of Honey Fingers, on his mission to bee-keep in a beautiful, natural, healing way. His insight to the world of bees and his passion to continue learning and developing new ideas surrounding bees is always inspiring.
I'm also obsessed with…
My cats. Sleeping. Eating wonderful food with wonderful humans. Making sure my friends and family know I love and adore them beyond anything.
