with Isis Cahaus
Artist & muse
Where are you from?
I’m from Caracas, Venezuela but I live in Peru.
What is the history behind your name?
My parents had me and took one year to name me… so I was nameless for a year. My first name is Isis after the Egyptian goddess. My parents thought it was easy to pronounce and write and they also wanted me to be a painter, so it would be easy to sign my paintings.
What is your craft?
I’m a fashion design student but I really enjoy making ceramics
What is your favorite eyde piece? And why?
All the pieces are very beautiful and I like the inspiration behind them. I’ve grown very fond of the red glass earrings. They look so delicious, like strawberry candy, and elegant. They sparkle in the sun.

How did you find or begin your craft?
My mom is a fashion designer & she would take me to the factory & fashion shows with her. I got into ceramics when I moved to Peru. My friend took me to his friend’s studio. He was cute & offered to teach me; we’re friends now.
Tell us one thing about yourself we don’t know!
I studied mixology and wine tasting so I can make any cocktail as long as I’m not in the US cause I’m not 21 yet! And I was in etiquette and beauty school for 5 years in Venezuela.
