The epitome of Logan Clark. She might still have a shirt with this very saying. She seems prickly on the outside, but she is sweet and soft.
Logan’s main job is dyeing yarn for us, but she is up for anything we need her to do. She has a natural talent for finding color combinations that are so striking. Whether it is dark and mysterious, or light and springy, she nails it every time.
Besides her work here, she is a full-time student at UNCC studying Anthropology. Her science mind coupled with her artistic side makes her unique and brilliant.
Logan answered some questions for us so we can get to know her better.
Who are you as a craftsperson?
I like all things crafty. My favorite thing is to incorporate crafts and creativity into mundane aspects of life.
Tell us about your business/craft.
I work for Hearts on Fiber. The central part of my job is to hand-dye our yarn. I love experimenting with color in a medium that is very hard to mess up. On top of dyeing, I love to knit, crochet, and embroider.
How are you motivated, what inspires you?
Having a creative outlet as a job is motivating. Crafting is cathartic to me and having a chance to do so on a daily basis inspires more creativity.
What are your passions? (Does not have to be related to your craft or art)
I’m an anthropology student at UNCC. I’m passionate about history, travel, the human skeleton, and making the world a better place.
What do you find the most frustrating or difficult in your creative process?
I never finish things. I get excited about starting projects but don’t stay excited.
How do you overcome that challenge?
I let myself take breaks on projects. A lot of times I feel refreshed when I go back to a project that’s been sitting for a while.
What is your favorite tool, or the one crafter tool you couldn’t live without?
A good ziplock bag encourages organization that I can’t live without.
Is there a piece you’re most proud of? Why?
There are a lot of pieces that I will be proud of once I finish them… I made a lovely shawl out of beautiful yarn, and it’s the biggest project I’ve ever completed, I’m pretty proud of that.
