When I meet someone who creates with her hands something stunning to wear, I’m always fascinated.
This is the case of Tatiana, aka Taala, the protagonist of this month’s Unconventional Wedding interview.
Hi Tatiana, first of all tell us something about yourself, who you are and what you do
I’m an artisan, I create accessories for brides (not only) that I realize with an unusual material, the porcelain.
Where does your brand originate from?
As a creative I constantly need new inspirations. After about 10 years spent working for different brands as a fashion designer and illustrator, I decided to throw myself into a new project. I felt the need to devote myself to something more manual, so in my spare time I began to attend a ceramist workshop. I was fascinated by direct contact with the material, and from that moment I constantly have my hands covered with clay! There is a lot of my past in what I create today, I think it was a natural evolution.
Tell us about your creative process, what inspires you and how your porcelain jewelry born
The collections are strongly inspired by the floral world that I try to ricreate in an abstract key.
I’m also inspired by the material itself, the porcelain, with its pure color, its malleability, its resistance opposed to the (only apparent) fragility. It surprises me every day. I realize mainly bride accessories, and I think that the raw porcelain, without adding glazes, reaches the height of elegance.
For what kind of brides are your jewels?
I speak to a bride that keeps up with the times, who wants to experiment without losing the right dose of romance.
In addition your collections, do you also make bespoke jewels?
Of course, they are all handmade and every jewel can be customized on request, both in form and color.
