What’s the first web-page or app that you open in the morning?
When you are working, you are listening to…
I listen to the radio when I am working via Internet, but when I am working in a studio, I prefer the silence.
What is your favorite movie? And TV series?
My favorite movie is “The Eternal Sunshine Of a Spotless Mind”. I love the movies of Michel Gondry and I watch lots of TV series.
How about your favourite fashion designer at the moment…
The potter Sage Cortes from the brand Hand & Fire Ceramics.
What are some things that inspire you in your everyday life?
Nature. I can spend hours and hours watching it. I get inspired by its forms and colours. I think that nature is the best designer.
What is your favourite social media?
Instagram. It allows you to get to know more people who have the same passion as I do and who like my works. On the other hand, I can find a source of inspiration, meet new artists and designers, discover new ideas…
If you were another person you would be …
If I had to choose, I would be my sister. As all siblings are, we are very similar, but I love her for the differences between us.
Tell us the story of your brand…
Since my childhood I have always dreamed of being a designer. I grew up in a very artistic family. When I was small, they called me “frog.” That´s why at the moment I had to choose the name for my brand, I chose “La Grenouille Égarée” (trans. French “a lost frog”) so it could reflect my personality – a frog lost in its imagination.
Tell us about your product… What do you sell? How do you create it?
Sometimes, I imagine future things for the home, some plates and illumination from specific forms and I start to make a design and to try something. Other times, I concentrate on functionality, target public, environment where this object is going to be used and then I begin to think about the forms but in any case, I am always inspired by nature.
What is your dream? What will be the next step for your brand?
I have lots of dreams. I have many ideas for La Grenouille Égarée but I would like to start with the opening of my store-studio where my clients can enter into my inner world.
Why do you use Bloombees?
There a lots of people who connect with me via social networks, and in particular, through Instagram. Talking about online sales, I am sure that social media is the best way to get in contact with future customers and the Bloombees app gives me this unique opportunity.
What do you like most about Bloombees? How does it make your life easier?
First of all, I think that it is amazing that a customer doesn’t have to sign up to make a purchase. Also, I like the the speed of the whole buying experience. In just one click I can publish one product in different places at the same time. Thanks to such an app as Bloombees, people do not just see one of my products, they can get to know my whole universe.
What does it mean for you “to sell online”? How do you plan to achieve a global reach?
It is so difficult for me to sell online. I think that if we are talking about ceramics, especially hand-made, the customer should see it in person, touch it…and through the internet it is impossible to do so. One strong advantage of online sales is that my brand can be at different places at the same time and I can have my customers not only in Europe or Spain but all over the world.
