“Bettunika (@bettunika) is intuition, oddness and fun created into ceramics,” explains ceramicist and small business owner Betina Jørgensen. “My nickname is Betut and my design philosophy is to make every piece unique. The combination of these two became Betut-unika (meaning unique in Danish).”⁣ ⁣ Just a year and a half ago, Betina converted a bedroom at home into a workshop and started firing ceramics as a hobby. With support from her daughter, the two realized her pieces had real potential. “Dare to trust your talent,” urges Betina. “Stop worrying about rules of perfection — being creative intuitively challenges the norms.”⁣ ⁣ Learn more about Betina’s small business and holiday plans on today’s story. ✨⁣ ⁣ Photo by @bettunika

“I am often inspired the most by discovering how things work and trying to re-create that process inside of the 3D world,” says creative director Lukas Vojir (@lukasvojir).⁣ ⁣ “It has a lot to do with asking an interesting ‘what if’ question at the start. I love that 3D allows for a mix of so many different disciplines, even as an individual or a small collective you can achieve so much with CGI that would otherwise just not be possible,” says Lukas, who collaborates with his partner Alexa Sirbu (@alexa_sirbu) through their studio XK studio (@xk.studio).⁣ ⁣ “My fascination with how things move and Alexa’s talent in how things look and feel makes it work,” says Lukas. “‘0% Food’ series was one of the launching projects of XK studio. The inspiration was fascination with different qualities of food — the mechanics of how certain dishes are put together and the oozing, satisfying look to it. I think what defines our approach is the focus on mesmerizing motion; it can be something very simple in terms of an idea or shape and texture but the way it moves mustn’t let you go and just scroll or swipe past it.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Videos by @lukasvojir

No computers were used at any point in the making of these machines or images. Instead, artist James Gandy (@gandyworks) hand-builds harmonographs, wooden and metal devices that employ pendulums to create patterns and geometric images.⁣ ⁣ “The drawings are a demonstration of the proper function of the mechanical process. I enjoy the drawings, but the real fun is making the machine and experimenting with various mechanisms,” he says.⁣ ⁣ “One of the signature elements that makes up the designs is a continuous line either making ellipses or arcing lines in close series creating forms, sometimes cyclic and geometric and sometimes more amorphous and organic.⁣ ⁣ The time-lapse videos are satisfying because you see often unlikely forms take shape very quickly. The drawings are quite slow to finish in real time. I think these forms and shapes are universally appealing because of the natural laws of physics that determine the designs.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Videos by @gandyworks

Arben Vllasaliu’s (@arbenl1berateme) #oddlysatisfying 3D artworks are an amalgamation of abstraction, expression, surrealism and precision.⁣ ⁣ “I really enjoy seeing things moving in perfect timing. I started to create these kinds of animations for myself because the process of making them was really therapeutic to me. I had no idea that my videos could have an impact on other people, so it will remain special to me as long as people can benefit mentally from my work,” says Arben, who is originally from Kosovo.⁣ ⁣ “I prefer my workflow to be with no boundaries. I try to create animations that are mainly satisfying for the one who watches the video. However, I like to experiment with different emotions and visualize them in animations. I also always pay attention to details such as the textures and the colors as well, which add to the level satisfaction. Every video has a name, and every video has a specific ‘story.’ So, if you watch them a couple of times, I think you will see different details and find a different meaning.⁣ ⁣ I think it’s like magic how my video animations can adapt to your current mood.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Videos by @arbenl1berateme

“Running CAT HAUS (@cathaus_USA) feeds my A.D.D. [attention deficit disorder] in a beautiful way,” says small business owner Lora Lombardi.⁣ “I need to be doing a lot of different things to stay engaged. So being responsible for everything myself, such as designing, sourcing materials, constructing the pieces, photography, branding and more, keeps my mind spiraling just how I like it to.”⁣ One year ago, Lora created the first CAT HAUS for her cat Tuesday when Tuesday took up the habit of scratching the furniture in her new apartment. “Once some of my friends saw how cool it was they said I should start selling them,” she says. “I feel so fortunate and grateful every single day to be able to offer these pieces to the world. It has turned losing my waitressing job from this pandemic into a true blessing!”⁣ #SmallBusinessSaturday⁣ Photos of @cathaus_USA by @hannahrosalewislopes

For Patrick Willie (@patrickisanavajo), to be a hoop dancer is to be a storyteller. “In our culture, we use dance to tell stories or lessons in life, to help inspire, motivate and share a positive feeling for others,” explains Patrick, who is Navajo and currently ranked sixth in the world for Native American hoop dancing. “I have always had a passion for creativity, especially with film. I am a big cinephile and using that as inspiration for creative projects combined with culture brings me so much joy.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ During November, #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth is celebrated in the United States. “We indigenous people are only 2% of the population and having a month dedicated to us to help share our culture warms my heart,” he says. “My ancestors and culture have been through so many trials and turmoil though we still stand strong to this day, proud of who we are.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Reel by @patrickisanavajo; Music by @atribecalledred feat.
