Convo: Emily Katz, artist / designer
Emily Katz, founder of Modern Macramé, connects with us about:
Her upbringing and its influences on her aesthetic and creative process
How recent KonMari work has helped cultivate intention, gratitude and freedom
The beautiful melancholy of holding on and letting go to the things and beings we love most
The gift of reconnecting with her mother after 20 years and the role macrame played
How the creative process can help us authentically connect to both ourselves and others
The thoughtful indecision of deciding whether to become a parent
A fantasy-meets-functionality idea for child-sharing in a culture of nuclear families
Why we should ask ourselves if and when a situation is a Fuck Yes!
