What services &/or products are offered by your company?
Professional belly casting based on your individual preferences; from belly bowls to full torso. I offer basic casts as well as different finishing options including resurfacing, reinforcement, and painting.
Tell me how you got into this line of work?
I studied sculpture and ceramics in college, and loved the ability to manipulate something into a new form. In 2013 when I became a doula, I liked the idea of offering clients a unique way to remember their pregnancy. My love of sculpture and welcoming new life found a union in belly casting.
How does your business differ from your competitors?
During the casting session, I enjoy talking, laughing, and connecting with the mom as we capture her belly's form. Pregnancy is such a short, but significant time in a woman's life. It's incredible to see her reaction when the cast is removed, as if suddenly she is really seeing what others see!
You're a new addition to the crayon box, what color would you be and why?
Bisque: the color I should incorporate into my wardrobe more, because it hides all the splashes of plaster that inevitably land on me during casting sessions!
If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?
A lighter, a knife, and the spirit of MacGyver to craft anything else I might need.
What three things do you need to be successful in this business?
A calm presence, laughter, and lots of coconut oil are essential since casting does involve slathering a person in strips of gauze.
What goals do you have for the future of your business?
Connect with photographers in order to incorporate belly bowls into newborn photography sessions.
Exploring all the options for body casting so that I may offer intricately detailed work in the future.
Transforming the belly cast into a functional piece of art, so that only you and your family would know its true origins.
