MEET THE MAKER : SIMONE & SAMANTHA FROM LIVING DECOR TWINS
Living Decor Twins
How long has your business been operating? 9 months
What do you make and create?
Samantha and I create one of a kind ceramic planters. All our pieces are hand sculpted using earthenware clay, under glazes are then carefully applied. Our pieces are then bisque fired. After the first firing,the piece is painted with a clear glaze then fired a second time for a gloss finish. Each one of our pieces is a one of a kind art piece.
Tell me about the person you are in everyday life?
Samantha and I are twin sisters. We both have two kids each and are stay at home mums. We live across the road from each other. Samantha is a qualified hairdresser which comes in handy when it comes to styling the planter's hair. We owned and operated a cafe together for 8 year, which we sold when I became pregnant. We both have a passion for plants and gardening which leaded us to make our ceramic planters.
Tell me about why you love to create your products or brand?
Our product allows us to be very creative which we love. All our planters are unique, they are little art pieces. We also have a great love for plants. We love creating new pieces for our own plants. We love sitting together at my dining table and coming up with new ideas.
Tell me about the space you work in to create your products?
We work from my dining table mainly because I have to watch my 2 year old as we work. We are in the process of building a little studio room for us at the moment.
Does your family help or have any input into what you do?
Yes our kids love giving us ideas. They also love making there own pieces with the clay.
What are your short term goals?
To build up a strong following of people who love our work. We would love to do more markets and hopefully get a few of our pieces in a Gallery.
What are your long term goals?
We would love to be making our pieces full time, hopefully selling out.
Do you have an inspiring message or quote for man kind?
When you support small business you’re supporting a dream.
Why do you love being a part of the Mermaid Sorority Markets?
The markets are so well run, with lots of different amazing brands. We love meeting all the fellow makers they really inspire us.
