Inspired by the beauty of her Virginia Beach home, Margaret creates works of functional art. Her pieces range from fun, seasonal holiday designs to elegant floral motifs. Each of Margaret’s pieces has its own personality, just like all of the wonderful members of our una grande famiglia.

After a long day spent gardening, balance work and play with Margaret’s Hand-Painted Floral Watering Can and her Hand-Painted Tulip Wine Glass. In a meticulous seven-hour process, she first hand-paints this gorgeous design, then bakes the design onto each glass so that the decoration is dishwasher safe. Add a sweet touch of spring to your table with this fabulous wine glass. Each hand-painted wine glass is made one at a time and no two will be exactly alike.

In that very same seven-hour process, she hand-paints each watering can with a tulip design, then bakes each one to ensure the decoration can withstand the elements. This beautiful piece can be utilized indoors or out, and is as gorgeous as it is functional.
