Let’s start at the beginning. Who is Erin?
Object maker, Graphic Designer and co-owner of ethical Jewellery label Wild to Ware. I like to tell stories with good design and am the weird type of person who can wear white linen while eating spaghetti and keep my shirt clean.
We really admire your commitment to the creation of hand-made, sustainable and local goods. It’s a beautiful, slow way of creating that feels like exactly what we are all yearning for right now. Can you tell us a little bit about your creative process and the philosophy behind it?
Thank you! Because I have so many creative businesses running in conjunction with each other, they’re all a little different. Generally though, my creative philosophy looks at the beauty in simple, hand crafted objects and forms, removing the superfluous. I always aim for timeless and lasting creative outcomes and avoid trends.
How have your own creative pursuits in woodwork, ceramics and jewellery influenced your interiors aesthetic?
It’s really guided me focus on conscious purchasing of objects that are made well, ethically and locally. My style is mostly eclectic, Victorian, but always comfortable with a focus on the handmade. Also, as a typical Taurus I love creating spaces that are relaxing and decadent (think silk and linen textures!). It also probably explains my love for filling every nook and cranny with plant babies.
