Adriana Forster's Profile

About

Hello! My name is Adriana Forster. I'm the designer, maker, photographer and everything else of Bluelala. I went to art school sometime in the mid-90's..where I got my degree in graphic design and where I met my husband. I'm from Chicago and I have a love/hate relationship with the city life. What can I say? The older I get, the more I crave peace and quiet. :)

I love all things art, modern, beautiful and funny. I also love a good burger, sushi, anything coconut and my moms home-made tamales (which we make every Christmas).

Both my parents came to the U.S. from Mexico and settled in Chicago, IL. My father used to draw and paint in watercolors and my mother did many crafts, including making her own clay (out of bread and glue).

When I was little, my mom would also make a lot of my dresses and Halloween costumes. I vividly remember my Raggedy Ann costume. Man did that red wig itch!! But I loved wearing it and knew that no one else had that exact costume.

I think I learned very early on that creating was something that you just did. After experiencing with many different mediums through out my life, I found myself working with clay, as well as my mom did. I started making jewelry with polymer clay, learned a few basic metalsmith techniques, and most recently I found the love of metal clay.

For now, I'm far from thinking of myself as a jeweler. I think of myself more as a visualist and like to use various mediums to create my little world.
