Q&A's with Spring Trunk Show Participant Lara Melnik

The Spring Trunk Sale happens on Sunday, April 26th, from 10 to 4pm at the Chocolate Claim. Local artists and designers will show up with a trunk full of handmade, creative works you will love. This is part five of a six part series of interviews from the Trunk Sale vendors. (Lara is such a good friend, I just have to add that it's so nice to see her smiling face on my blog! See you soon Lare!).

Describe your medium – what will you show up with in your trunk?
Polymer Clay; small works of art and jewellery.

What do you enjoy about your work?
Blending blocks of clay into intricate patterns of flowers, shapes, bugs and words. It’s like magic and I never get tired of it.

Do you have a favorite tool, tip or skill that’s made things work better for you?
I use a hand-cranked pasta machine to blend the clay – that makes things better for me. I love my stylus tools – essentially a set of pokey sticks with balls on the end.

What do you listen to while making?
CBC or CKRW (the Captain) sometimes my iPod.

What are your favourite colours right now?

The rainbow.

What’s your website address?

Do you have a favourite blog or website?

Where else and when else can we find your work?
Jewellery at the Chocolate Claim during their business hours, year round. Arts Underground on main street for art work and some jewellery. Bean North Café on the hotsprings road for jewellery.
