I’m lucky enough to be at the fabulous blogging conference, Altitude Summit, in Salt Lake City this week! I decided to kick off a new series while I’m gone… Inspiration Dialogues will be dedicated to demystifying the inspiration process. We’ll be talking to bloggers, designers, and artists I admire. Hopefully, we’ll get inspired along the way!
Here’s Emily, of The Object Enthusiast, Blog + Shop:
Tell us a little bit about you and your blog.
I am a ceramic artist, and all around object enthusiast. my blog is a look at the objects people love, and the objects that matter the most to us. i celebrate things beyond usefulness and aesthetics, but the objects that have meaning behind them.
When you start a new project, how do you begin the “inspiration” stage?
My projects stem from lots of little ideas and thoughts I collect day to day. I’m a treasure lover! I hold on to tiny little things because they came from somewhere special or they used to belong to someone special, and I’ve got to have a place to keep all that stuff. So, I build it. I like making vessels and trays and dishes that are meant to hold those extra special things, or even become something special by themselves. I love knowing that my objects are used in people’s lives.
How would you describe the feeling you get when you’re inspired? Productive? Dreamy? Imaginative?
Wow, thank you, Emily! I love that you stop to feel thankful when you’re inspired. That’s quite a peaceful thought. Y’all, don’t forget to check out Emily’s shop!
PS – I’ll be back tomorrow with a very special designer!
PPS – Keep up with me while I’m at Alt on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram!
