DAY IN THE LIFE - RAYA SADER BUJANA
June 12, 2018
Last week on the
Ohh Deer Instagram we had paper artist Raya Sader Bujana take over our feed. Raya gives us a peek into her creative process and shows us a snippet of her vast plant collection!
Hi everyone, this is Raya taking over today here on Ohh Deer 🤗! I'm a paper artist and I thought I'd start out by showing you a paper version of myself 🙋🏻♀️ I'm a bit of a crazy plant lady 🌿🍃🌱and tend to show that side of myself in some of my personal work 🤷🏻♀️ Follow along today for a peek into my day, my studio and what I've been working on this week 💕
This is me again, real one this time 😂, over there hunched over my desk doing something tiny. See? Surrounded by my plants (you can't even see a third of them in this photo 🙊). Everyday I come to my studio, make myself a coffee (priorities! Coffee is life!), check my plants (Yes, I talk to them 🙊😂) and then I get straight to work. I try to take advantage of all the natural light I get in here and leave answering emails for the evening 🌞
This week I've been working on a new plant for my Tiny Big Houseplant series 🌿 A Black Cardinal Philodendron (Yes, I have one, it's behind the camera 🤩) I'm a sucker for detail and work really hard on it, I tend to get into a sort of meditation state while I'm working on something 😊 I try to get as much little detail into everything I do and am always learning, practicing and trying to get a little better at what I do 💕 There are a lot of close-ups and process photos in my profile if you're curious :)
Here she is! My latest piece finished in her pot. The Black Cardinal Philodendron 🍃 I started out by making a regular clay pot (you can see it in the previous photo 👀) and then changed my mind and made a mid-century cement pot and stand with a zillion tiny squares instead 🤣
I thought I'd show you a family photo of this series 💕 It's slowly getting bigger. Do you have a favorite plant? Let me know in the comments and I'll try to make it 🙌🏼 If you want to see a little more of my work you can follow me
@littlerayofsunflower , I don't only make plants 😂. Thanks so much for tagging along 🙋🏻♀️💕
