Episode 25: Using Astrology to Gain Perspective with Tati Petkovic

Astrology means a lot of different things to many people but for those you go deep into what it all means they agree that it allows a level of introspection that many of us wouldn’t do daily in the same way. Tati Petkovic founded her astrology line Moon Sign Supplies to connect people to their signs in a way that was easy to incorporate into every day life. From totes to phone cases, there’s a playful nature that Tati explores with each design and she describes the process as revisiting play with crayons and energetic colours.

In this conversation we talk about getting to know your sign and what that means about how you perceive yourself, the people pleasing nature of certain signs such as Libra but on a more complex level something that seems to apply to most women and whether it’s really a good idea to look at sign compatibility when you’re now starting dating someone new.

Wild Concrete is the brain child of Brazilian born and raised Bruna Kowall. Now settled in Toronto you can catch Bruna selling her beautiful minimalist plates, trays, coasters and pots at various beloved markets. In this episode we explore the importance of her faith in her practice, how she transferred her experience of growing up seeing her dad’s construction company back home to studying industrial design and prototyping these concrete creations that help ground her and bring her back to herself. Integral to it all are the mentors, her husband and friends that told her to just do it. We aren’t thinking about a figurative one day anymore, we’re putting whats unique to us out into the world to be appreciated.

Episode 16: Making An Accessible Space in the Art World with Ria Elciario

Welcome back! It’s taken a minute to get back into the swing of podcasting but I am so excited to start it back up after a year hiatus. Our first guest is Ria Elciario, founder of the online platform She’s Got Wonder where creatives have a chance to display their work in a landscape that is often hard to enter. Ria was inspired by her own experience and struggles getting her work seen, to give voice to those talented individuals that found the barriers to display their work intimidating and impossible. The name was inspired by the David Bowie song She’s Got Medals and the rest is history.

Ria dabbled in the culinary arts, had an online magazine, from early she had a love for performance and music and her story meanders in this way of using her family and friends to inspire creating and pushing past mental blocks that she gets very vulnerable about. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.
