Dear people of the world, stop everything you are doing because I have to share something with you.
Drums in the background…
I’ve decided to make this Sunday not just another Sunday but The Sunday whenI show you my latest bravery – The Tea Set I’ve imagined and signed for Casa Wagner – Arte Frumoase si Povesti – Maison de la Porcelaine. I am sure you all know that Wagner House is the most prestigious and known porcelain house in Romania
I was psyched when Irina and Ana Wagner suggested this to me, almost a year ago – I would have to imagine a story that will be engraved on a tea set. Hearing that amazed me on the spot! It was perfect! The project that would become so close to my heart that I would dream about it for nights in a row – a tea set imagined by me!
I spent months thinking about the right story, the story that would be told on a tea set and gain its right to live forever. But which story deserves that?
“It has to be a good story, a wise one, a story that would make you cry with joy, that will make you wanna tell it to everybody and most of all, a story that can create a moment of happiness in the life of everyone who hears it” – these were my thoughts for more than 6 months.
Until one day, while waiting at a traffic light (the few strikes of intelligence I have happen mostly when I wait at the traffic lights – don’t have an explanation for it), I suddenly realized – it has to be my story! Not because it’s more fascinating than any other life story but because this way people will understand that the most important story is Their Story!
So I ran with my idea to the Wagner sisters and they loved it too. Now the only thing left to be done was telling that story on a tea cup…
After even more weeks of team work and adding Ana Wagner‘s creative talent, the 19th century lady who has her tea and tells her stories was finally getting a shape and form – that was the image I had seen in my dreams, all my life! I spent years thinking about that, the fact that she was me in another life (stop it, I have not gone crazy)
We called the tea set POVESTILE DOMNISOAREI ANA and it’s dedicated to all of you guys who believe in your personal strength and in your own story!
You can buy the whole tea set or just a piece from it at Wagner – Maison de la Porcelaine showroom. .
This project is deeply close to my heart because hand painted tea sets are an important part of a new artisto lady like me and you so stay tuned for more surprises regarding it!
