We had a quick chat with Nurdan from Tatata Creations about her handmade jewellery and accessory brand!
Tell us a little about what you create
I like to think my all designs are as accessories but it could have split into jewellery and accessories as well. I use mostly natural materials. With jewellery, it is litterally natural materials such as leafs, feathers or flowers. The idea came up one day in nature 🙂 I am so into shapes and colors and I like to collect dry leafs and flowers whenever I go out. The problem with this you can not stop the process of getting dry when they are in their perfect color or shapes. I wanted to keep them as they are, in the present moment. That how it has begun the resin jewellery adventure of mine.
Shoe wings designs are mostly about the shoe addiction of mine that I should admit. I love shoes. In the contrary even though I have thousands of shoes I always stick with a couple of pairs and used them until they get ripped off. But I get bored easily too. Shoe wings are my solution to my relations with my shoes and my shoe`s problems.
What appeals to you about in.cube8r?
I am Turkey based designer and kind of new in Melbourne design industry. While I am building up my new life here I wanted to start doing my designs slowly and see how it goes. I knew that in.cube8r was a well known gallery where most local designers work with. I also knew that my designs would harmonize very well with the existing collection.
Tell us a little about your background
I am a stage designer.That is what we call in Turkey but here is called scenery and costume designs. I do every kind of design since I have been involved with design. I like to use my hands to create and touch it.
What influences you?
Everything. Literally, everything that I like it has an effect on me. Music, art, nature, colors, cultures, people, shapes. I can keep counting 🙂
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
This question has been always hard to answer for me when I was a child. I wanted to be so many things throughout years. But I never thought to be a theatre designer, to be honest. After I discovered this profession I realized how it matches with my monkey appetite and saturatedly satisfies me. I love what I do 🙂
Any future plans for your craft?
To make bigger things that you can get in or sit on or get lost in it.
