A short and sweet interview with the lovely Ana Kras to kick off the new year, enjoy.
Tell us a little about yourself
Hi, my name is ana kras.
Where do you live?
At the moment i live in east village, new york
Favorite neighborhood hang?
I don't really have a spot where I often find myself
Whats a typical day like for you?
wake up, shower, do some work at home while making breakfast, then i head to my studio to do more work, and then in the evening i meet a friend for a dinner or i go back home and eat there and take a bath and lay, rest and watch a doc or ancient aliens.
When not in the studio, where can we find you?
at home :)
Where did the idea of making your now infamous bonbons come from? What led you to this career path?
I studied furniture design and interior architecture. I made the first bonbon lamp 5 years ago. I was not inspired by anything particular, I had the idea of the process and I gave it a try, that's how I made the very first one.
How long does a piece take from start to finish? Can you tell us about the process?
At the beginning it was taking me very long time to make a lamp. now my fingers got much faster, depending on the size, the smallest one I can make in around 15 hours or so, maybe a little more.
What inspires you?
What other artists do you admire?
I admire Constantin Brancusi
