CD: I never thought of myself as being a designer, much less a professional designer. I remember being asked to speak at Hobby Industries Association (HIA) one time-as a designer, to the designers. I didn't know where I fit in. I didn't realize that what I was making up and doing on the air made me a designer. VH: Is there a memory that stays with you? CD: I suppose it's more of a group memory of the many things that went wrong Because I was doing everything live and learning as I went, there were a lot of goofy things that happened-like trying to demonstrate how easy and clever this new wraparound quick-sew dress was, and not being able to get out of it while we were still on the air.
So really, suburban crafts were how I started. VH: Was your dad an artist by profession, or was it just a hobby? " He did different jobs all the time. He repaired trucks at a truck facility, and then he did maintenance at an apartment building. He could build any thing-a carpenter/mechanic kind of guy. 40 VH: I can't wait to tell my youngest son that you got started by painting dogs, because he just went on a ski trip with his dad's family and (he's totally my child), he opted out of the Colorado slopes to take a pottery class instead.
I'm also reluctant to not acknowledge that personal creativity can infuse those platforms, turning them into something artistic. It's a difficult but interesting debate. What I think has happened is that art and craft have blended-that strict line is getting crossed and blurred in new ways. JH: VH: You've had a large presence on the Internet and specifically on message boards over the years. Have you noticed any change in the perception of what being crafty means during that time? Rob Walker, who wrote the book Buying In, has spent a lot of time talking to me and others in the DIY community.
