It has been a while from last the time that I updated my Etsy shop. So today I uploaded this vintage dish, made in DDR, I painted it last year with a hippie-gipsy-woman illustration, with her delicate flowers crown.
What? You were just thinking about a bohemian touch for your kitchen? Then you definitely need this dish 😉
Check out my shop for more ceramics and art!
Hello hello! Happy Saturday and summer weekend to everybody!
The most of you is already in holiday, spending the time in the sun, on a beautiful beach, snorkeling in the sea…aaaaaaahhh!!! I would like to go to the sea too! But this summer I’m staying in Berlin because I have a bunch of work to do.
As some of you maybe already know, I am from Sicily and the month of August for me has meant just sea, beach, summer festival, camping under shooting stars…I am missing all this so much! And also I have to say that this year the summer in Berlin is not really nice, most of the time the sky is cloudy and the temperature makes me think about the end of October in Sicily more than middle of August…
But maybe is better like this, I mean, I have to work anyway so maybe it’s better that the cloudy sky and the fresh air delete every chance to go even to the nearest lake…so sad……….
So let’s try to do a happy twist in the cloudy Berlin’s summer, for example adding to the our lunch table this vintage GDR dish that I hand-painted with the illustration of colorful little girl in the summer rain with her yellow umbrella!
You can find it on my Etsy shop, together with my prints and some of other hand-painted ceramics items.
Here we are!
Looking for new ideas and inspiration it happened to find here in Berlin some beautiful ceramics made in GDR, then I thought: why not try to use them as base for my illustrations?
So now that’s my new obsession: painting on vintage pottery.
That’s one dish I made yesterday 🙂
I’m writing from Brussels, I came here to visit one of my little sisters for the weekend.
I was supposed to fly yesterday back to Berlin but because of the strike of the air controller my fly was deleted so, if everything goes fine, I should fly tomorrow evening back.
Because of my vision of “everything-happen-for-a-reason”, I believe that this happened because I have to spend a bit more time wit m sister, and I’m happy for that, of course.
So while I’m here I did a portrait of her, hoping that watching it everyday will bring her colors and smiles.
