2017 Halloween Polish Pottery
Back by popular demand, our 2017 Edition Polish Pottery is here! In the village of Boleslawiec, artisans hand-paint each collectible Polish stoneware piece with a Halloween pattern. Each meticulously adorned ceramic treasure is hand-painted using traditional folk art methods. Halloween motifs are stamped on with hand-carved sea sponges and details are added with fine brushwork. To preserve these detailed images, our artisans glaze each piece and fire at high temperatures to bring you an everlasting beauty you will want to display for years to come.
Colorado artisan Gwen likens her craft to painting with clay, creating each figurine uno alla volta. Each figure features three “See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil” not-so-spooky Halloween ghosts defying gravity as they float atop a marbleized autumn leaf, joined by brightly colored pumpkins at their base.
In a third-generation workshop in Verona, Italy, Amedeo and his two sons, Valentino and Roberto, transform ordinary glass into luminous works of art. After applying stucco jack-o’-lanterns to the glass, a layer of gold leaf is added by hand, then brushed with translucent glazes. Once completely dry, each is hand-polished to a gleaming luster.
If you’re looking for the perfect Halloween mug, then look no further than this adorable ceramic Witch’s Legs Mug! From her studio in the Pocono Mountains, our potter JoAnn hand-throws each mug on her wheel and completes it with a handcrafted ghost decoration and handle. Fired, glazed and fired again, no two ceramic mugs are exactly alike.
For 36 years, our artisan located on the western shore of Lake Michigan has been dressing mice for the holidays. This whimsical mouse, with handmade stitched felt body, glass-bead eyes and nose, and mouse-sized costume, is ready for some “spook-tacular” Halloween fun.
As a child, she could often be found watching her mother paint. Surrounded by art supplies and found objects, Kim’s creative passion was fueled. Kim takes a whimsical turn with our millefiori black cat and pumpkin necklace, made exclusively for Uno Alla Volta. In her California studio, the joy she finds in working the vibrantly colored clay in her hands brings her delightful creations to life as she layers multiple strips of colorful polymer clay, which are then stretched and pulled into canes and sliced into thin cross sections. Kim then adorns our whimsical millefiori black cat and pumpkin necklace with beaded accents.
No matter which way you glance at her, our “Shimmering Glenda” dichroic glass Halloween witch figurine will be twinkling back at you. Karen, our southern California glass artisan, has been creating dazzling standup sculptures of dichroic glass for years, but this is her first “person” ever. She creates each figurine uno alla volta, by hand-cutting glass and fusing the pieces together in a kiln.
