About TrulyTextured

Sales 68
On Etsy since 2017

I am Bethany Casarez, Designer, Engineer, & Artisan.

My professional background is in Mechanical Engineering. I finished my undergrad at MIT in 2013 and am currently working on a Masters focused on Product Design at Stanford. I have always loved all forms of craft and making things by hand. I began making things in clay in elementary school, and have happily returned to it as an adult. I love woodworking, silkscreening, leather and felt work, crocheting, painting, machining, 3D printing, laser cutting, 3D Computer Aided Design, and graphic design.

In my work, I try to combine my love for traditional craft with the engineering tools and techniques I have learned in my education and professional work. Currently, my studio is my apartment which I share with my husband. As I continue to grow and expand, I hope to rent my own studio space as my working space is limited (and leads to a constant battle for space and organization-- married folks will understand).

I love to design things that connect with people and find a home in their everyday life. My goal is to produce designs that are:

PLAYFULLY PROVOCATIVE
designs that make us laugh and smile, and also pause to reflect
ELEGANTLY USEFUL
forms that bring beauty and delight into everyday life
GENUINELY EXPRESSIVE
objects that say something authentic about you that you want others to know
PASSIONATELY CRAFTED
pieces that reflect the dedication and practiced hand of their creator
