Solid Information about Tiny Sparks Design

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.

My name is Bradley Boggie and my business is Tiny Sparks Design.  I am making screen-printed goods, primarily prints on solid wood fashioned into wall art, coat racks, key holders and more.  I also am producing other accessories, t-shirts, bags and whatnot.

How did you first get involved with crafting?

I spent a lot of time in my Grandfathers workshop as a kid banging things together. When I was in high school I found a job in a small shop making very nice jewelry boxes and the process just clicked. A few years later I still had the bug and started an apprenticeship with a furniture maker.  I have been building custom furniture for the 18 years since.

What are your favorite materials to work with? Do you have a favorite color palette?

Well, I really know wood most of all and I still find it very rewarding to work with.  I love finding beautiful examples of domestic and local woods that people may not be as familiar with.

Adding a printed element to my work is new and I am learning a lot about mixing color and developing a sense of which colors work with certain woods.  I am loving this process.

What are your inspirations in your art and in life?

I am inspired by my eight year old son and my lovely wife, and I am inspired a lot by nature.  I also find inspiration in meeting other artists that are energetic and sharing and prolific.

What is your favorite song or album to listen to while working?

I am rabid about finding new songs and making mixes to listen to in the shop.  I love jumping between artists and songs that are very different but flow together in surprising and exciting ways.  As far as an album goes, right now I love Phoenix’s new one!

Who are some of your favorite indie artist/crafters and why do you love them?

I have spent a little time with a group of folks that create old fashioned Balsa wood and tissue rubber band powered aircraft.  I love that they skilfully create these beautiful and delicate little airplanes with lots of detail and character, then they wind them up and let them go, often with disastrous results. It feels truly brave and free.

Any exciting future plans or developments in the works for your business?

This is early days for Tiny Sparks Design.  It’s nothing but future plans and developments.  I hope that I find my niche in the market meet some great people and that I can continue to grow as a designer.
