1. What started it all for you?
2. What drives your creative spark?
3. Most treasured home decor item?
I was gifted a Persian rug from my dad when I graduated from high school. I’ve had this rug in every space I have owned for 15 years now! It has deep red, blue, brown and green hues that continue to influence how I decorate the rest of my home which is a grounded space usually filled with plants.
4. What’s the best advice you've ever received?
To let go; embrace the unknown and unexpected.
5. It's 5 o'clock at home. What would you be pouring?
My dog has dinner at 5:00pm so I am usually rushing home from the studio to feed his hungry belly. After I feed him I usually crack open a Limoncello La Croix!
6. What are your 6 favorite accounts that you follow for inspiration?
"I am deeply inspired by Roman pottery. I find this inspiration is very much intertwined with my Italian lineage and my familial history of sculptors and mason workers. When I look at books of Roman pottery from the 5th Century I feel a deep sense of connection and a drive to understand the ceramic techniques from my past." -Jess Sasso
