Meet the Maker: Louise Roe Copenhagen
What originally inspired you to start your first collection?
Where do you look to find inspiration, especially during these times when it is difficult to travel? And when do you feel the most inspired?
"I am in love with all tones of the earthen color palettes."
What feelings do you hope to evoke from people who see your work?
I hope they feel a WOW and feel a friendship with the selected object.
What are the most difficult/rewarding parts of your creation process?
Shapes and measures are often very sensitive to complete -very small measures can effect the total look in a direction - making it either totally wrong or totally perfect. Its like cooking - too much or too little spice or too little with simple raw products of high quality can make the dish / product perfect.
Do you have a piece you are most proud of or most connected to? Why?
I am very bonded to the Balloon 04 - in metal as in ceramic or gloss. The shape and form, for me, is where its all completed. But to chose one among your "children" is hard. I see all my objects as my family members and I would not produce them if they did not hove a right to be here.
In regards to your process, is there something you wish people knew more about?
I always strive not to create something already on the market - I sketch and create all objects by hand - I always end up choosing the best materials from my suppliers and I'm not really fond of compromising if money is the matter. I love cooking but never use a recipe - I feel there are too many rules when following one!
