Creativity Happens Everywhere: Part 3

Designer, Christian Sarragua (AKA Chity) on the muse of nature.

I'm inspired a lot by nature, so this video is a little nod to that. Particularly in Ireland, where the raw beauty of the native flora, the wildness of the coast and the contrasting delicacy of maritime vegetation are all so perfect on their own… It definitely inspires me to try to emulate that.

The craft of knitting is one way that I press pause on the transition of the seasons. You can see that in the woollen coral ornaments I've knitted: I've tried to capture the organic unpredictability that makes nature such an endless source of inspiration. You can never catch up, you can never get one step ahead – it's always changing. That's what I love, and what I've tried to reflect here.

Because at the end of the day, the only constant is change.
