Practise makes… practice

This is my zone. The creative little hub where I spend the majority of my time. My desk is in my bedroom, hidden away from the chaotic racket that a uni share house so often brings. It’s pretty clean at the moment, but usually papers, craft and wooden laser cut creations cover its surface. And of course, plants and flowers. It wouldn’t be my desk without these. From here, I grow a small jewellery making business, catch up on uni work and procrastinate down the rabbit hole of YouTube. One desk leg is wobbly though. I really need to fix that.

Last year I started “Lazy Susan Studio“. This little project sees me making laser cut wooden jewellery made from repurposed or recycled materials, in funky and unique designs. I’m proud of how it’s grown, and love the creative work I do.

Some key words I associate with Lazy Susan Studio:

And through these, the ones which I hope to pursue in particular include creativity, sustainability, experimentation, construction… and to add to this list; passion.

It’s hard to define my practice, at the end of the day. Right now, my interests and passions are diverse, but I’m having a fantastic time learning new skills and expanding my knowledge of the possibilities for further projects. In the field of digital media, the options and opportunities are ceaseless, and it’s so exciting to be a part of that.

We learn that through our practice, one becomes a practitioner. This doing defines the person who does the thing into a –ist, an –er. So what does that make me? Am I a writER? FlorIST? DesignER? JewellER?

For now, I call myself a student. Or maybe, if anything, I’m a learnER.
