..and a trip to Venice!


Yes, I went back home for just a few days - for a rather odd reason, actually: my parents organized some kind of neighborhood party at their place, and were in need of logistic help from their daghter (and by "logistic" I mainly mean making a *huge* lot of canap├ęs).

Anyway, it was a great opportunity to ask my father for a tour of the Venice lagoon by boat - something I had not done  in a few years - and to shoot some really colorful pics in Burano, a small island which is famous for the bright shades of its buildings.

And then, well, Venice itself - or the many wonders of a city of marble and water.
Can't wait to be back again! : )

A weekend in Stockholm


Pics from a sunny, happy weekend in the Swedish capital.
I had not been in Stockholm in a while, and I found it as charming as ever.
We rented a little boat and spent some time among the many islands and channels, enjoyed the sun in the parks, had a bbq on the beach, explored the old town and even joined a jazz festival.
And - although I had no idea - the wedding of the Swedish prince  was happening in Gamla Stan just as I was passing by.. oh well, that explains the unusual crowd, I guess. :)

Anyway, I absolutely recommend a visit to the city and its stunning archipelago. 
And Swedish summer (well, almost) is always incredibly beautiful!

Fears



"Fears" feels like a rather odd title for a June Sunday morning post. :)

But despite the blue sky and the warm sunlight gently shimmering through the trees, the subject of this post will be slighly creepy - not too much, I promise!

So, remember the miniature "bottled fears" I sculpted not so long ago?


I really liked the concept of representing rather dark feelings such as angst or panic through chubby, kinda cute little sculptures, so I decided to create a larger version of them, starting from some Kidrobot vinyl Micro Munnies as a base.


And here is the final result, hope you will like it!

Polymer clay on vinyl, acrylic paint and a matte sealant to protect the details.
Available in my Storenvy shop. :)
