Camille Smicker • Wondering Time
Director and Devisor Camille is a longtime theatre maker who has worked in Portland since 2002. She is a director, devisor, writer and teacher who has created and produced work both locally and abroad. Wondering Time emerged from an experiment with Polymer Clay that became a true love during this Covid time. I've always been a hands on / maker-type, and the experience of working the clay, playing with color, experimenting with design, and honing a new skill has been both therapeutic and inspiring. I love giving gifts, making gifts and beautiful things - so this is a little taste of that!

All of Forelsket’s luxurious bath products are hand crafted with care and come in an array of vibrant colors. No two products are ever exactly alike. We pride ourselves on being world travelers and when we travel, we love to immerse ourselves in the traditions and culture of the places we visit. And now, through our products, we want to share the joy world travel brings us, with you.
