Soap for me is art. It is a creative process that begins with an inspiration - something that catches my eye or a scent impression that lingers pleasantly in my senses for longer than my direct interaction with it. From there on, I slowly begin to see the soap-piece in my mind’s eye. It usually starts to take form physically by way of a sketch, the sketch is then translated into its representation in soap.
When I discovered soap-crafting , I finally found the artistic medium I had always desired, it allowed me to present my experience of things in the world that I loved in a way that simultaneously stimulated the visual, olfactory and tactile senses. I love being able to combine colour, scent, textures and working out how to make it all come together into a functional item.
It is exactly what you would expect a moonlit dream to smell like.
