Meet the Creative series: Chu Chu Ceramics
August 8, 2019
Are you a First Time Vendor at the Etsy: Made In Canada market?
Introduce yourself and your business
How do you stay creative?
Is your creative space neat & tidy or a beautiful mess?
Tell us about how your product / designs are made. What is your favourite part?
What’s the most challenging part of your business?
If you have an appreciation for hand made pottery, you will not treat a mug like a mug, you will cherish it as it was made by hand all the way through and doesn’t compare to a factory made Ikea mug.
Are you a Creative full-time? If not, what’s your day job?
Both are creative in it’s own right, one is based on technology, the other is more hands on.
What do you wish customers knew about you or your business?
I am the only person making all the product, marketing, setting up online presence, social media, displays, sales, , shipping, taxes….the list goes on!
What is your favourite place to hang on the West Coast?
I’m very much half mountainy and half city. We don’t have mountains in Toronto and even after 10 years I am still amazed by the view and the ease of access. The beaches here are stunning, the views are incredible everywhere and I still think it’s incredibly picturesque being able to see the North Shore mountains through the city’s skyscrapers.
Will you have any new products or designs at this year’s Made In Canada market?
What makes the Etsy: Made In Canada market special or unique?
Tell us about your all time favourite customer!
Time to get mushy – how did you feel when you made your very first sale?
Born and raised in the Vancouver area or do you come from afar?
