State of Mind: Elise McLaughlan

Earlier this spring we visited the studio of Elise McLauchlan, a talented woodturner and furniture designer living in Vancouver by way of London. With a background in fashion and creating elaborate prop-driven window displays for clothing brands, Elise moved to Canada three years ago to set up her own studio where she creates her line of beautiful, sculptural, and useful hand-turned bowls, vessels, and home objects. Below we spoke with her about her current state of mind —her drive to create, how she dedicates time to chasing new ideas, and how she regards the ever-evolving practice of not being so damn hard on yourself.

That’s how my love story with bandanas began, though the story of these scarves dates back much further than my vintage store rendezvous.  . . . Read More
