“I transformed the inspiration from my Dad's Tiffany style lamps into fragrance scent warmers.”
“I am inspired by the beauty of nature and transformation, and find satisfaction from working with my hands.”
Why is making handmade goods important to you?
I was very handy when I was a kid. I did all kinds of crafts for myself, for my family and even for my pet. I simply love being a part of the handmade process. Art makes me happy and I believe we should pursue what gives us joy in life.
Walk us through your production/design process.
The design process starts with researching and brainstorming fresh ideas. I use Illustrator to do the sketch and see how it might come together. After determining colors and dimensions, I go to my studio to cut the glass and build a prototype. After a few modifications, a new design is born!
What did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
I wanted to be a business woman because my dad is a successful business man. He influenced me so much when I was young. He has always told me go after the things I want and become the person I want to be.
