Reconcile with yourself. Be kind with yourself. And then things you thought were only plausible in dreams, will start to happen. I incite relaxation and comfortable interiors. I incite self reconciliation and kindness.  Because those are not weaknesses.
The weather is far too hot for any sort of brashness. I have half of a cold blini with equally cold mushrooms and chopped parsley. Blinis are for the Czars, not for those who hail from  Mediterranean shores. It's far too hot. The sky doesn't seem to move. I am not able to read a serious book at this time.

A conversation with Tania Enriquez | Fixed Air

What lead you to start Fixed Air?
Fixed Air (the name which was directly taken from the attribute of my astrological sign Aquarius) was once a blog(spot) page I started years ago when I was living in Philadelphia -- clothes and random musings... Fixed Air is now a platform I use for objects/jewelry I make -- and to answer your question, this venture into making things started when I took a metalsmithng class after work hours and evolved into something full time -- honestly, it's because I listened to people's encouraging words. I'm grateful. 
What does inspire you lately?
My friends from the past, present and future. People inspire me always...  People I meet on Instagram inspire me a lot lately... it really amazes me how much awesome people I've met through it.

Can you please tell us a little about your philosophy on beauty, style and well being.
Beauty is the feel I get from clothes/objects made with sincere intention. Style to me is based on intuition. Well being is being at peace with every decision you make... even with picking the proper meat for your tacos.
Do you have a uniform you tend to wear daily? What are you on rotation clothes of choice?
I wear things on random rotation... very much so influenced by the temperature outside, haha. I do love wearing tai chi shoes or any type tabi style shoes... and comfortable clothes. 

What are the things that are upsetting you in the world right now? And what are the things that are making you happy?

I try not to be upset... If I were to be upset by the things in the world worth being upset for right now, I'll probably be really ill from stress. So I won't be upset by the upsetters ;) 
Experiencing and seeing compassion, creativity, acceptance and love message make me happy. I want to focus more on that...
If you had to karaoke one song right now, it would be...

I love this question because I actually do have an answer... "What's Up?" By 4 Non Blondes

A conversation with Joanne Burke

In an era of a globalized, massification of taste, Joanne Burke creates Art. Wearable Art. Her work, makes our brains tickle and our hearts skip a beat. Looking at her work is like stepping into a magic time portal, which directly sends us to ancient realms populated by gods and goddesses, mysterious creatures and mythological symbols. And Beauty. We are able to see Beauty and craftsmanship in every detail. And humour. Because intelligence and humour go hand in hand. The penis ring, the boob ring, the sacred and ancient phallic and fertility connotations, see light again, unpretentiously in this industrialized , mechanical and banal sex era.
While some people post on Instagram more or less crooked photos of undifferentiated trash and this season's shoes, Joanne Burke posts Art. Photos of nuns in Rome wearing inspiring colour schemes of black and washed out blue, ancient civilizations ruins, funny Medieval painting details, and the jewels designed by her. Joanne Burke just makes all of us want to move to Rome, wear antique Romanian blouses and remain indifferent to modern world maladies.

Please tell us a little about your background.
At this moment, a chalky white wall with a tall leafy plant leaning towards me, as if to whisper me something....3 masks hanging- one a paper mache Egyptian face made by a child, one of an Indian goddess supposedly stolen from a temple in India and the other, my favourite, of an ugly old lady. A string of seashells from Tasmania hanging from a blue candle. A white piano scattered with corals, pearls and shells I've collected and a ceramic girl riding a fish ornament i bought with me from America that is very important and special to me.

Your work reflects a very intricate, intimate and artistic world; filled with ancient symbols and almost ritualistic codes. Where does your inspiration come from?
From the need to find a better way of understanding and communicating my feeling to myself and others. I've created my own 'code' as you say, as a way to manage my own reality instead of trying to adapt to usual existing codes, that just don't fit me at all.

What was your first fashionable memory?
 Wearing a tiny pair of engraved brass Aladdin shoe ornaments from my grandmothers fireplace decoration and being so upset to visit for the weekend and find that my feet had grown too big to wear them anymore. Also, drawing my dream outfits of faux-fur vagina skirts, plastic sunglasses bras with nipple eyes and shoes with alive and dead fish inside the heels when i was 8 or 9.

What are your favourite things about living in Rome?
The expected and unexpected visions awaiting you around every corner....

I know you have studied dance. What is your favourite piece?
Martha Graham-Night Journey (1947).
