Snippet from therapidian.org:
"I love making use of old treasures to find a new use for them and incorporate them into something wearable. I enjoy finding a use for an over abundance of things, too. Sometimes, if I don’t want the item, I will take a picture of it and it will inspire me to create something from it, for example if an odd shaped toilet seat comes along, I don’t want that in my house, I just want to keep the memory of it,” she laughed at herself. All joking aside, she really loves vintage items, such as fabrics, gadgets and any kind of interesting shaped treasures she might find.
Our current overabundance of technology has given new life to the term “handmade.” Angela is part of the renaissance of artists using old techniques in new ways. To her, handmade means being involved in the process, using one’s hands to create original designs. When asked what “handmade” means to her, she had difficulty pinning down a definition. “It is something you feel and it is hard to put that in words sometimes.” She joked, “Like what would happen if I lost both of my hands and replaced them with hooks? Would it now be hookmade? Would I no longer be in the category of handmade? Handmade is original, it is from the mind and heart, period.”
