Female Creatives: Through Fujifilm’s Lens

Female Creatives: Through Fujifilm’s Lens was conceptualized to tell the visual story of three local women excelling in their respective creative fields. Each artist was chosen for their craft and unique eye for their art form. These women have paved a new road for what being a creative businesswoman embodies. These three are heroines both in their own story, and part of an unlikely but beautifully meaningful collective.

The Three Featured Artists

Dram Apothecary

A native to Colorado, Shae Whitney grew up on the plains and prairies amongst the rolling sage and musty pines where she developed a curious admiration for species of the plant kingdom. She then took this love and paired it with her years of experience as a bartender to create the recipes that are the heart of Dram.

A collegiate background in Food Science, Ecological Agriculture and Botany has also greatly influenced her work with Dram Apothecary.

Dram believes that the inclusion of bitter plants and herbs into our everyday diet is essential for vibrant health and agreeable digestion. All of DRAM’s products have been designed to offer the healing benefits of various plants while still tasting wonderful enough for use in cocktails and the kitchen.


Notary Ceramics

Sarah Van Raden began throwing ceramics in college and was absolutely terrible at it. She had a teacher that minimized all of his students and left her feeling discouraged. It took her 10 years to find her way happily back to the wheel.

This time, the class was filled with people from all ages and walks of life. She instantly fell back in love with clay. She loved the way it made her feel like a child again, carefree and full of possibilities. After throwing very sporadically for about a year she bought her own wheel, saved up for a small kiln, and emptied out a cluttered basement to make way for a studio.

After a 10 year hiatus and nearly a decade working as a photo stylist, she feels she’s found her true talent and passion in creating pottery. The imperfection, the wobbles, the wonkiness, it all works to create a beautiful handmade product that reminds you of the person that spent their time creating it for you to enjoy. Her heart is in every piece.


Molly Debiak

Molly Debiak is a graduate of Studio Jewelers Ltd. in New York City.

There, she was trained in the profoundly traditional ways of metal fabrication, lost wax casting, and diamond setting. With every piece she creates, she strives to achieve a balance between these precise methods and the imperfections of the organic world in which she finds her inspiration.

She currently resides in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA.


Project Brief

These creative women are among the best in their craft. They have built their businesses from scratch. Filming, production, and image creation surrounding this project was captured in early July 2017.

FUJIFILM North America Corporation has partnered with Kara Mercer to bring this project to life. An exhibit of each artist’s story will be told through the lens of FUJIFILM X Series and GFX system cameras.

There are two parts of this project: the image and storytelling component, which is perfect to be shared in print or digital form. This static component pairs perfectly with the in-person component of an exciting exhibition, which will fully present this brief in Seattle, WA.

Each woman’s story will be shared via images and film at the Female Creatives: Through Fujifilm’s Lens exhibit, and each creative will be physically present with their wares to showcase to art-lovers and consumers alike.

Emily Henderson

Emily used the notary candlesticks in her latest post for Parachute home. She styled a dining table in two styles. One casual and one formal. She used our candlesticks in the more formal setting. We love how she used the handmade nature of ceramics to create a comfortable yet elegant table, alongside beautiful silverware and glassware.
