Wednesday Addams…a style of life

Who doesn’t know Wednesday Addams and her mood? She is always funny and so spooky at the same time. So I created some mugs and a teapot about her. Sometimes I feel like her and often my face has the same expression..but like she said: “I am not in a bad mood, this is just how I look”.

Sugar skulls…my passion

I love skulls, especially mexican skulls. I like colors, decorations and the meaning. The best phrase received about my sugar skull mugs it is happened twenty days ago; an american customer stationed in Italy told me: “I am half mexican and your mugs make me feel at home”. I am so glad to heard phrases like this one, because in this way, I know how a simple mug could be something more and it gives emotions to my customers.

The sugar skull meaning is quite intense. It has a lot of meaning in Mexican culture and is the main symbol representing Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Ancestors who have passed away are represented by clay molded sugar skulls which are painted and decorated, the names of the departed are added to the forehead of the skull and then the skull is placed on the grave stone to encourage the departed loved one to appear on the Day of the Dead.

So enjoy those pictures of my ceramics and other sugar skull stuff!

The creepy night is coming

Bottega Krua presents an amazing photo shooting by Steve Malone. We had a lot of fun for this new experience at 6.30 am, in a foggy sunday, in an old and abbandoned villa near Vicenza. The place was absolutely perfect for the pictures and my ceramics. We laughed a lot while we were taking the pictures, even if the scenes must be misteriously and spooky. It was a bit cold and early for a sunday, but we did a good job. So what I have to say more? Enjoy those photos!
