Natural materials, simplicity and practical (multi)usage of what I make. Not that I hate things that just exist but I feel that we are to much attached to things that serve only once and only to one, particular purpose. And once used they finish in garbage. I want my creations be usable for “this” and “that” and by “big” and “small”. And they are washable !!!
How did you get started? Have you worked in other creative areas before the kind of work you’re doing now?
I started with jewellery that is still my main craft activity. I also knit a lot – basically for kids. Than the idea of filling home with some colours and simple, funny things came. This is how I started Frigg Studio. I am really at the very beginning of the whole Frigg universe creation. My head is exploding with ideas but I am a little bit missing time to have everything done.
Do you work alone? With a team? Do you engage your family or friends in the work? What is your process? How do you ensure you get your work done yet still have a life?
I work alone and only alone. I ask my husband’s opinion when I finish.
Crafting is really fun for me. I create when I feel like. Nothing can be forced – it does not work for me. I put on sale almost items that are finished. That is why my shop is not that full …. But I prefer having fun creating something than working on order.
Where do you sell your work? Which venues are your favorites? Do you prefer selling online or in person? Do you attend shows or fairs? Is your work in a gallery or brick-and-mortar store?
I have also some clients among my family friends – they especially love the aprons :-)
