    The lessons I've learned from 50 episodes

    In this episode, I reflect on the lessons I've learned from doing 50 episodes of this podcast, Process! I discuss the challenges of committing to a hobby and the discipline required to produce content consistently. I emphasise the importance of being authentic and creating a comfortable environment for guests. I also explore a low-key identity crisis that can arise when transitioning from one role to another. I highlight the power of asking for what you want and the positive impact of consistency on the relationship with myself. Overall, I'm here to express gratitude for the support and I'm looking forward to the next 50 episodes!

    En Gold's Steff Ball on ancient craftsmanship in a modern interiors world

    En Gold's Steff Ball on ancient craftsmanship in a modern interiors world

    In this episode, Steffanie Ball, founder and CEO of En Gold shares the journey of her business. She starting by sourcing vintage pieces on Facebook marketplace to designing her own collections, sold internationally. She explains how she discovered a gap in the market for unique and affordable furniture in Australia, which led her to start an Instagram account and eventually launch En Gold.
    We discussed the challenges she faced in sourcing and manufacturing her products, including finding a stonemason to make marble plinths and navigating the production process in China. She also highlights the importance of embracing imperfections and the philosophy of Wabi Sabi in her designs.
    En Gold is a furniture brand that specialises in handcrafted pieces made from native materials in the Philippines. The founder, Arielle Thomas, moved her family to the Philippines to be closer to the craft and ensure the pieces were made with justice. The brand's range includes Dali collections made from native timbers, seagrass, and rattan. The craft in the Philippines is untouched by technology, with everything being done manually. The process of creating En Gold's furniture involves hand braiding, hand weaving, hand sanding, hand painting, and screen printing. The brand also uses fossil stone, which is a soft and porous stone that is carved into tiles and used in their furniture.
