Davis has been crafting forever and through his company, lines by: davis. has been making handmade products from home decor to bags and accessories and now letterpress cards. He recently got to vend at this past years' City of Craft in Toronto for the first time and found the experience a love fest of handmade items and makers. Davis tries to vend and support The Workroom/City of Craft shows when he can and this time around he will be producing handmade chocolates and letterpress products. There will also be some lines by: davis. staples such as the eternity scarf and pouches. This past holiday Davis had delved into chocolate making and he's found it as therapeutic as sewing. "Hopefully I will spreading the Valentines Day spirit around with some good ol' fashion handmade chocolates. From what I've heard, they're delicious."
What's one thing that really inspires you and your work these days?
I am inspired by fashion, art, music and a combination of those things. I am a visual person so I like to absorb inspiration through images and everyday life. I try to pick up on certain colours, details and ideas while doing my own work.
What do you like to craft for yourself or for close friends and family only?
I am a wannabe knitter and I would like to one day finish my knitting projects and hopefully give them away to friends and family. I try to "craft" on my own because it's fun to do and make something that you're not used to.
What's your favorite thing about toronto?
My favourite thing about Toronto is it's love for coffee, coffee houses, cafe's whatever you want to call it. There seems to be a coffee boom in the city and I don't mind because I heart coffee.
How do you deal with cold, cold winter nights?
My down filled slippers, tea, ice cream, blankets and bad reality television.
Heart = organ or emotion?
Depends on what I am feeling that day.
