father's day with sloane angell

September 04, 2020

sloane angell is an artist, designer and sound stylist based in sunny los angeles. as a multi-disciplinary creative, sloane is well-versed on the usual juggle of the everyday, but as the pace of life has slowed down in many aspects for us all, he has welcomed the extra time and attention to devote to his young son, arco. in celebration of father’s day we caught up with sloane about the new ceramics projects keeping him busy, and why bill murray in ‘the life aquatic’ is a favourite and unassuming father figure.

name and age of your child?

archibald rome angell. we call him arco for short, which means arc in spanish. he is a little over a year old.

 

what personal and creative projects have been keeping you busy?

the pandemic created a lot of space and time in the beginning and i was able to dive into some new projects – a lot more sculptural and all hand building, whereas most of my work usually starts on the pottery wheel. i’m hoping to show these pieces as the galleries begin to open back up here in la. i am also back to being busy with commissions and larger scale architectural work.

i have been working alongside the botanical group usa on a number of projects this year – i created a collection of ceramic lighting pendants and lamps for their new restaurant at the old @grandmasterrecorders space in hollywood and @sol_losangeles, and i worked with their chef Monty Koludrovic on some custom tableware. i’m always making new items for @rthshop in west hollywood.

 

2020 has been an unusual year for a lot of people – how are you staying positive and inspired? has there been much of a change in the way you work and live?

it definitely did in the beginning! i dj as well, something i truly love to do, and that is no longer possible. that was a huge adjustment, and i miss it dearly. i can’t wait to play music for people again. i am very grateful i was able to continue making work during this time and that always keeps me positive. the pandemic has also allowed my wife and to devote so much time to arco over this period.

i am a pretty big goofball. i tend to have to turn down my goofiness to the general public, but as a dad i can keep my goofiness all the way up!

who's your favourite on-screen father from a film or series? why?

this is a dead tie for me. the two fathers are marlin from ‘finding nemo’ as well as steve zissou from ‘the life aquatic with steve zissou’.

these two characters are some of my favourites, and they embody many traits and emotions i associate with fatherhood. marlin literally swam the ocean to find his son; he risked it all. that kind of love and determination is inspiring to say the least. ‘the life aquatic’ is one of my all-time favourite movies. steve is a father figure to his whole team, who rely on and look up him. steve struggles with aging and his inabilities throughout the story, until he realizes his role and newfound importance. this film causes us to face our darkest fears and to embrace who we are meant to be.

what’s your favourite thing about fatherhood?

i am a pretty big goofball. i tend to have to turn down my goofiness to the general public, but as a dad i can keep my goofiness all the way up!


what is the best piece of advice you ever received from your father?

the best piece of advice i received from my father was to keep putting yourself out there. if you are down or discouraged, nothing good will come from shutting down. good luck can’t find you if you are not looking for it too.
