Today we read a little about the inspirations that have inspired Mr Flowers, aka David Earp.
What did you want to be as a child?
I WANTED TO BE ALONE
Where do you find creative inspiration?
In piles of old fabrics.
What makes you different, what inspires you to create unique pieces?
I can't help it - the colours and different designs are screaming at me.
Which blogs or magazines do you read regularly and would you count as an “inspirational read“?
I don't have time to read blogs and I don't ever read magazines, unless I find them on the tube.
Why are your pieces special?
Because of the process and the spirit of the shuktara family that permeates through them.
Can you tell us about a gift that you will never forget?
A 1960's magazine that came through the post for my birthday and miraculously arrived in Calcutta.
What do you have planned for the future?
What are your three most important advices to any upcoming crafter/designer?
Do it. Do it again. After 5 years if it isn't working - then do something else.
