Interview As Art



1. What was your first work of art and how old were you?
In fact it was not a work of art, since I was like 5 years old I used to draw a lot and made it good for that age, I have a very special memory of a drawing I made of the human respiratory system, I did from my book without trace, although the result seems rather an alien hidroencefalico, my mother was dying of laughter and show it to everyone who visited the house
2. What did you do for fun when you were a teenager?
I used to watch t.v. a lot!!, tracking all my favorites singer and actor, find out the lyrics of English songs and white them on my scrapbook, I loved to make mix’tapes from radio, used to play valleyball.  In terms of crafts I began to experiment with  painting on cloth and postcards making.

3. What and when was your first job?

My first job was at a ceramics tiles, kitchen and bathroom shop, as I was 21 years.

4. What was your first work that really pleased you as an artist?
I’ve been into so many craft is difficult  to say, in everyone of them I’ve been proud when after so much effort I find myself making some improvement, like lately, anything that comes out of my workbench…without melt it down… makes my day :-)

5. Who was the first artist to influence you?

Localy, finishing my career in Interior Design I met two teachers (Dominicans) who taught me the most captivating part of the art, they are the architect Gustavo Ubri  and the Interior and plastic artist Marianela Jimenez.  From the first I learned how complex, chaotic, interesting and rewarding it can be the designing process and from the second I knew the artistic/aestetic side of artcrafts and the different fine arts techniques as well.  

6. Has your work gone up in price compared to when you first started?
No really, too soon to say.

7. Where do you get your ideas?

I’ve just realized I’m very dual when it comes from designing, I like to experiment with forms and geometric shapes but also with organic shapes found in nature.


8.  Do you think that there are any art movements now?
Yes indeed,  we can identify clearly an worldwilde nature conservansy, recycle movement . In my country I got to say  more and more artist from different areas are using their skills to express discontent about social and political issues.
9. What is your favorite color?
Red, purple,  autum colors well,  deep inside I like them all.
10. Do you do all your own work, or do you have people working for you?
Just being myself by now.

11. What kind of toys do you have?
My DRSL camera, tools, silver and stones are my toys now, and the botanic garden and workbench are my playground! :-)
12.  Do you have any habits you’d like to kick?
Mmmmmm…. Let me think… walking barefoot  maybe but it feels so good!, or maybe drinking too much coffee… oh well who Am I trying to fool!?
13. Do you play any games?
I used to play Farmville and Cityville, now I don’t have the time, should  I feel ashamed? :-p 

 14. How old were you when you got your driver’s license and is there a story attached to it?
I Think I was 23, don’t remember,  nothing worth telling but I just drive automatic.
15. How much time do you spend on the computer?

Much more that want sometimes,  between editing photos, updating my pages, Pinterest jajaja No much time left!  I wish I could have more time or spend it more efficiently.

16. Do you watch TV, (if so, what are your favorites?)
I have periods of watching to much (tv series addict) , I used to watch Heroes, Dr. House, Brothers & Sisters, and watching none like now.

17. What do you eat?

A mix of tradicional Dominican dishes and Italian food. I’m a veggie lover.

18. Do you believe in flying saucers

Maybe yes, maybe not, I'm not totally convinced.

19. Do you believe in magic?

I believe int the magic of nature, Life itself is magic.

20. Do you look in the mirror when you get up?

Now that you aswer I realize I don’t  jajaja,  just before going out, that is enough for me.

21. Do you think the world can be saved?

From what? From ourselves? Tough work!

22. Do you think there should be censorship?
Well, it is difficult to answer, I would prefer no, this times are more and more difficult to know what is right and what is wrong, to get the ‘’healthy balance’’.

Interview As Art (in French and English)

1. What was your first work of art and how old were you?
peut-être un petit pot de terre, monté en colombins avec la glaise du jardin...sinon je me souviens d'un dessin
de terrier de petits animaux sous un arbre...un début de mon intérêt pour les espaces à vivre et à dé et boîte, ma passion...
Maybe a small earthenware pot,made with the clay of the garden, otherwise I remember a drawing of den of small
animals under a tree beginning of my interest for living areas and to discover... house and box, my passion...
2. What did you do for fun when you were a teenager?
écouter et chanter sur les Beatles... plutôt retro...déjà sérieuse...

Listen to and sing on Beatles rather retro already serious...
3. What and when was your first job?
quand j'avais 17 ans, je faisais les visites guidées du Musée et de la Cité Médiévale de Pérouges... 

When I was 17 years old, I did the conducted tours of the Museum and the Medieval City of Pérouges...
4. What was your first work that really pleased you as an artist?
le premier croquis de modèle vivant que j'ai réussi...

The first sketch of model living that I made a success...
5. Who was the first artist to influence you?
Léonard de Vinci
6. Who were your favorite movie stars growing up?
John Wayne and then Harrison Ford and then Tommy Lee Jones...what does it mean?
7. What were your favorite TV shows growing up?
Cosmos 1999, Invaders, Logan's Run, The Twilight Zone, Magnum ...Born Free and BBC animals shows and french one called "Caméra au poing", etc...
8. Has your work gone up in price compared to when you first started?
oui, le temps passé sur une pièce ne peut pas toujours être oublié... à un moment on ne peut plus se dire qu'on
a perdu du temps, il faut admettre que c'est la qualité qui l'exige, et cela a un prix. En même temps je recherche la qualité des matériaux à côté de l'argile polymère.
Yes, the past on a piece cannot be forgotten always... at the moment one cannot say to himself more that he
wasted time, it is necessary to admit that it is the quality which needs it, and it has a price. At the same time I look for quality materials besides the polymer clay...
9. Where do you get your ideas?
Je dévore toutes les images que je trouve...avant dans les livres, maintenant je continue
livres+internet...toutes les formes d'expressions artistiques visuelles m'intéressent, avec une nette préference pour le dessin, BD/comics, la photo et le design d'objets... l'architecture a fini de m'intéresser sauf quand il s'agit de Grands projets.
Tout cela crée un vocabulaire dans ma tête, je sais ce que j'aime et pourquoi... par contre la couleur est
toujours une pièce rapportée, réfléchie après par rapport au sens... je crois que je ne pense pas en couleurs... mais j'aime la couleur! C'est juste que ce n'est pas ce qui est le plus important pour moi.
Après, c'est l'envie de faire quelque chose de bien défini qui me guide...
Par exemple pour le collier "Tourbillon" je venais de dévorer un livre sur BOUCHERON, et ce qui revenait sans arrêt était la transformation des bijoux, soit radicalement soit par mécanisme...comme le thème était "l'avenir" et que je suis très "Bio" avec de nombreuses discussions en tête sur le sujet, tout cela aboutit à la biodynamie, au tourbillon et à un collier transformable...
Voilà comment je trouve mes idées...
I "eat" all the images which I find before in books, now I continue books+internet
All the forms of visual artistic expressions interest me, with a préference for the drawing, the COMICS, the
photo and the design of objects. The architecture stopped interesting me except when it is about Big projects. All this create a vocabulary in my head, I know what I like and why. On the other hand the color is always a brought back, thoughtful part, later with regard to the sense, I believe that I do not think in colors but I like the color! It is just that it is not what what is the most important for me. Later, it is the envy to make something well defined which guides me...
For example for the necklace "Whirlwind" I had just read a book on BOUCHERON, and what returned non-stop was the transformation of jewels, radically or by mechanism.... As the theme was " the future " and as I am very "Organic" with numerous discussions in head about the subject, all this ends in the biodynamie, in the whirlwind and in the convertible necklace...
Here is how I find my ideas...
10. Who do you think is the best business artist in the world?
Tous ceux qui arrivent à vivre de leur Art... Les grands chefs de cuisine par exemple...

All those who manage to live on their Art... The very media Chief of cooking for example...
11. Do you think that there are any art movements now?
Ce qui revient beaucoup...
Le mouvement/sa décomposition, en plus de la 3D/trompe l'oeil, avec également un aspect romantique/enfantin/naïf
de la mécanique... qui donne ce Mouvement...
Illusion de la Vie avec les trompe l'oeil(dessin, peinture, photo...) qui peuvent être toutes ces planches
d'études de plantes qui sont de nouveau à la mode... et en même temps la simplification de ces formes organiques qui nous envahissent comme des ombres portées sur tous les supports verticaux : tissus, papiers peints stickers
le mouvement mécanique donne t'il la vie? La décomposition et le dessin du mouvement image/image anime -t'il?
C'est un peu Frankenstein... la technique donne-t'il la vie ou la falsifie-t'il, la remplace-t'il?...
Peur ou recherche du Faux, illusion / réalité
What comes a lot...
The movement, its decomposition, besides the 3D / "trompe l'oeil", with also a romantic / childish / naive aspect of the mechanics which gives this Movement... Illusion of the Life with "trompe l'œil" (drawing, painting, photo) who can be all these boards of studies of plants which are fashionable again and at the same time the simplification of these organic forms which invade us as shadows... concerned all the vertical supports: fabrics, stickers wallpapers
Does the mechanical movement give the life? Does The decomposition and the drawing of the movement "image / image"
liven up?
It is a little Frankenstein...
Does the technique give you the life or falsifies it, replaces it?...
Fear or search for fake, illusion VS reality...

12. Do you think kids should get grants to decorate subways?
ça dépend...j'apprécie le respect par dessus tout...
It depends... I apprecie the respect by top everything...

13. Have you or anyone you know been involved in street art?
J'ai failli faire la décoration d'une palissade de chantier à l'école. Par la suite j'ai côtoyé un artiste qui a fait une fresque sur le mur de clôture d'un boulevard de Lyon, France. Le dessin suivait les dénivelés et un niveau de la mer fictif sur le thème du sport, c'était géant...
pas de street art.
I almost made the decoration of a fence of construction site with the school. Afterward I knew an artist who made a fresco on the enclosing wall of a boulevard of Lyon, France. The drawing followed the made uneven and a fictitious sea level on the theme of the sport, it was huge..

None, since a long time or then the pc but without the games, and the mobile without the games..
to draw for my job was a big game but now it is broken, I get organized another one to me as I can with a family activity which is far from being a game.

oui je regarde trop la TV, mais ça m'aide à faire le vide! et donc à dormir après!

Essentiellement les produits bio de notre ferme ou d'autres producteurs amis. J'ai un mari cuisinier qui me gâte et me régale même avec une salade de l'huile du vinaigre du sel et du poivre... l'assaisonnement, un bon produit et c'est toujours excellent!
J'ai banni le blé de mon alimentation, même si son pain est trop délicieux avec du fromage de brebis!!!!
Essentially the organic products of our farm or the other friendly producers.

The Interview As Art

Sandra Zubčić

1. What was your first work of art and how old were you?

Well, I've to think! Since my childhood, I loved to keep my hands busy, doing something creative. Drawing, knitting … things like that. My first serious work, which I was really proud of, was my colleague’s portrait, drawn on our art class, shown on a school exhibition. I was 13 or 14. It was a drawing with drawing charcoal on paper.

2. What did you do for fun when you were a teenager?

Oooooh, a lot of “wonderful” stuff. The most innocent thing was collecting ants in glass pots filled with soil, to “study” how they are building there tunnels. Looking back to that, my parents had a really big understanding for my “hobbies”

3. What and when was your first job?

It was a job as an accounting officer, some 20 years ago. Still, I’m in the same branch, working in an office. Numbers, tables, reports … a boring accounting job. It had to be spiced with a little bit of creative expression.

4. Has your work gone up in price compared to when you first started?

Yes it has. Not much, but there is a slight difference.

5. Where do you get your ideas?

A lot of things can give me the needed “click”. A movie, something I’ve read … a conversation … curiosity to try something new. I think Pinterest is a strong inspiration source.

6. Who do you think is the best business artist in the world?

Donna Kato, for instance. An artist who developed a significant business in the world of polymer clay.
7. Do you ever think about politics?
No, never. Simple because, thinking about politics won’t give me anything. Maybe just some bad headache.

8. What is your favorite color?

Definitive purple. Although, I love to look at, to use or wear something turquoise. You can see me more often in dark colors than light one. I avoid very strong colors. I don’t know. It’s maybe a mistake. But, I simple don’t like to be in spotlight, that’s the reason. 

9. Do you do all your own work, or do you have people working for you?

Everything I do, I do it myself. For now, I don’t have a problem with finishing everything on time. Having in mind what kind of products I produce and what techniques I use, I don’t have the need to shift something. My younger daughter seems to have an interest in art. So, who knows … in some near future, she could maybe help me.

10. Do you have an interest in films or video?

After last year’s experience, yes. I’ve created jewelry, mostly in chainmail technique, for a British medieval movie with colorful and rich costumes. It was an honor to see my work in a project like that. Yes, I would like to do something like that again in the future. It was an interesting and new experience.

11. What kind of toys do you have?

My pliers. And in near future, a lot of metal smith tools. 
12. What do you do when you're not working?
Gardening. Can’t wait for spring to come when a new gardening season begins, and I love it. Or, treasure hunting on the nearest flee market. 

13. What time do you go to bed and what time do you get up (most of the

Mostly I’m getting up at 6. Some hour or two more on weekends. Although I’m trying, I never go to bed before 23 or 24. 

14. How much time do you spend on the computer?

Too much! I can’t remember how many times I said: you have to change it. But, probably it’s a normal phase in everyone’s live. Starting with a lot of new, fabulous sites but after some time, it’s not possible anymore to follow everything. At the end of a day, when I look at how much time I spent working on the computer I’m a little bit concerned.

15. Do you watch TV, (if so, what are your favorites?)

Yes. Even when I’m working on a new piece of jewelry, my TV has to be turned on. Thrillers, crime movies, SF. But, also, good historical documentaries.

16. What do you eat?

Almost everything. I can’t resist Haribo candies, ice-cream and pasta with every kind of sauces.

17. Do you believe in flying saucers?

Let’s put it this way: I don’t believe in aliens like those from “Star wars” or “Alien”. But, I do believe in live somewhere in the deep of the universe. I can’t believe that live exist only on our planet. Think, this would be some kind of selfish. 

18. Do you believe in magic?

O, yes, I do.

The Interview As Art

Marian Hertzog

Blue Heron
on the Nanticoke River

1.  What was your first work of art and how old were you?

My first work of art was painting a ceramic Christmas ball. My mom taught ceramic classes in our basement. She had four balls with scenes on them. I came up with painting one with blue paint that resembled a staining effect. I was probably 8 or 10 years old. My mom and aunt loved it and made several like the one I did. Made me feel pretty special! The first drawing I did that I felt good about was when I was in my early twenties with some colored pencils.

2. What did you do for fun when you were a teenager?

I can't tell you what I did for fun as a teenager... we were bad.

3. What and when was your first job?

My first job was as a sales clerk in a ladies clothing store when I turned 16.

4. Where do you get your ideas?

 I get my ideas from surrounding myself with my stuff and letting my muse travel. I also get inspired by looking at others work.

5. What is your favorite color?

 My favorite color is teal or blue green like Crayola crayon.

Turquoise Drops 2

6. What kind of toys do you have?

 My art tools are my toys. The biggest toy we have is our camper. We love to camp in the woods or by the water. My Havanese babies are my alive toys.

7. What time do you go to bed and what time do you get up (most of the time)?

My perfect sleep hours would be from 11pm to 7am. But I work as an accountant three days a week so I have to get up at 6 to start my day so I am tired earlier.

8. How much time do you spend on the computer?

I spend way too much time on the computer but I love looking at all the wonderful creations and ideas on Pinterest and in Blogland.

9. Do you believe in flying saucers?

I believe that we never know what else is out there beyond our current means of weights and measures. Remember that at one time the greatest minds in the world were sure that it was flat.

10. Do you believe in magic?

I believe that we only see part of what exists so that things can appear like magic.

Thoughts on TADA365 - 2011 and future

A whole year of TADA365 passed. We were so overwhelmed in 2010 with Ring-a-Day challenge that we just wanted to continue with the same emotions of pushing some of our dormant parts of creativity in an environment without negative pressure from anyone and tons of positive vibes and inspiration from online community of people with same inclinations, problems and visions. Thus the name True Addicts of Daily Art. Thanks to our dear Mary Lu Wason for creating the group and pushing it forward, giving us guidance and organising our minds with necessary deadlines for themed shows.
Our first intention was to drive ourselves mad by posting every day something about our creative ventures in jewelry making. Through the year it has been proven to us that it wasn't important.
Main goal is to keep the creative energy flowing between us and within us, thus making it glow through all our work and communication. We have shown to love our differences, enjoy in them and grow through them. My vision for this group is to keep that bond we have between artists and keep growing in that spirit. Support is of critical importance for every human being to grow in healthy spirit, so is for an artist. I thank each and every member for being understanding, compassionate and kind.

I asked our members two questions :
1. What does joining TADA365 mean to you now when you look over your shoulder and remind yourself of the year 2011?
2. Do you have any expectations, ideas or visions for TADA365 in the future?

Lets take a glance into some of their thoughts.

Evelyn Markasky:

Well, looking over my shoulder has been a very interesting experience! I found my journal from January 2011 with the writing and sketches I did for TADA. My observations that I made at the beginning of 2011 were almost exactly the same things I said to myself 2 weeks ago beginning 2012. (Including losing 10 pounds and not always being on the computer!) Seems like I ended up doing what I usually do... start off strong and excited and then get worn down and lost. Of course, all was not lost. I may not have completely seen through the original ideas from 2011, but by the end I had completed a lot of work and evolved in a way a had actually hoped I would.  I may not have ended up posting something everyday, but I don't think that was necessary. I wanted to do that to keep going in my studio and working and staying inspired, but now that is no longer a problem. What TADA had evolved into for me, was a group of close friends (that I still can't believe we really don't know each other face-to-face!) where we could think out loud and get feedback and advice and inspiration. I think the most exiting part was figuring out having online exhibitions (thank you Mary Lu!) I haven't been on Flickr as much as I used to, but I think part of the inspiration from TADA was to work more, surf less, and that has definitely happened.

I think TADA can evolve into a really cool online thing, more than just flickr, (which we've already seen happen.) It's something we started because we love what we do and it's still going and it is being allowed to evolve. We don't have to keep doing something we don't need to be doing anymore, we are always assessing what our needs are and the needs of the group. It also allows everyone to work at what ever level they are on. In addition to the online exhibits, I think it would be very cool to do some physical exhibits where we send our pieces to different parts of the world and create shows.  Members who are able to can try to get together a local show and we can all have a piece in it...

Maria Apostolou:

After completing Ring-a-Day, I joined TADA365 because I wanted to continue being  part of a supportive online community  and stay in touch with my friends. Also, expanding on previous ideas and creating collections, which was the main goal of our group, seemed like the next logical step to take. As I look back, I'm so grateful for deciding to join TADA. The making process can be so lonely and there's nothing more important that having a safe place to exchange ideas, share feedback and support one another.

The goals of TADA365 for 2012 reflect exactly what I would like this group to be in the future. I would say that they even surpass my own expectations!

Jill Palumbo:

I've thoroughly enjoyed TADA365. I was so encouraged by this group of creative and caring people. I learned so much from the others involved; how ideas are generated, how different artists tackle the challenges involved in creating jewelry, and that each of us faces setbacks and lulls. Being in this group really motivated me to keep working, to keep creating. Even though I broke my kneecap and was too busy to plan any shows, I had a few surprise shows, last-minute invitations, before and after the holidays. I sold many of my TADA creations! I was prepared with products and display pieces, and I have TADA365 for the successful shows.
About TADA 365 in the future? I would love to try this again. A weekly project sounds tempting to suggest, but I know I would not produce as much. I would not have learned so much on the planning details of producing artwork for a show if this had been a "product-a-week" type of group.

Making a Fig Box Jewel from polymerclay

I will make something close to this old box i've made in 2008 from a picture
beautiful pics here!!!!

This project is the "fruit" of a challenge with a Frenchwoman artist of Polymer Clay,
With her I share the taste of the "trompe l'œil" and the "faux", inspired by the nature this Parisian is also gastronome, and there also I join her...
Thus the end of 2011, further to an article on one of its exhibitions of the end of year we exchanged some words on " figs in polymer clay", and as I am crazy about fresh figs texture, taste, the seeds which crack between teeth I dashed.
Regards fruits and fleshy vegetables, as wife of Cook I always considered these as having two aspects: inside and the outside. Outside which we remove or not, outside that we cut to see / eat the inside... The box is a permanent obsession for me and thus having hesitated on the project fig ring which deprived me almost of the vision of the inside (unless removing the ring... Contemporary rings have this idea/concept...) I returned towards my passion of boxes and their construction.

I chose one i've made in 2008, whose hinge is almost invisible, which is interesting for a fruit cut in halves...

3 days working on and this is the result...

Did you know that fig doesn't undergo the gravity on the tree... i mean "not like an apple"

The link between tree and fruit is special, so i did it... but of course i didn't change the usual pendant of the purse...

I am a girl from 70ies, My childhood was marked by movies " as "La Belle et la Bête" of Jean Cocteau, "Peau d'Ane" of Jacques Demy, but also all the Cape and sword Movies where the women wore dresses covered with precious stones which made them sparkle... 

I love these vague pictures of sparkling women in great and poetic dresses... It is the global feeling that I looked for as finish of the jewel with some glitter sealed in the material beside Swarovski crystals .

I hope you enjoyed the story. Happy New year with TADA!!!

TADA's First Online Exhibit!!

The Show is Open!!!

Letters of Adornment :

An Online Exhibition of Artful Adornments

from the Flickr TADA365 Art Jewelry Group

Using the English language to communicate, an international group of jewelry artists share their work each day. They upload pictures in their Flickr group, TADA365, of their inspirations, works in progress, celebrations and also frustrations.  They support each other with comments, challenge each other when one learns a new technique, teach each other with works in progress and inspire each other with their completed pieces.
Here, within the same parameters of A through Z, they share their work with you.  Each artist has been given one or more letters of the English alphabet. The interpretation of the letter and what it stands for is their individual vision.
