DescriptionEach product is unique, respecting the frame and the universe of Caroline Cutaia.
Porcelain postcards, representing a Mediterranean decoration.
Mediterranean decor. Rather minimal graphic elements.
A radiant sun, the sea and its horizon line,
a vegetal and/or architectural element, to suggest the "postcard" decor.
Hand-drawn with a knife blade, and hand-colored with brilliant glazes without lead.
Texture play between the shine of the enamel and the raw matte clay.
These cards are perforated, intended for decoration. The back is worked in the manner of a real postcard.
postcard. It is possible to write a personalized word with a pencil or posca.
I collect objects of all kinds... objects that evoke or allow memories fascinates me
for as long as I can remember. Family photos, postcards, decorative plates...
Objects that try to summarize modestly :
"a moment, a place, an era
are the ones that touch me the most.
The name of the collection:
One day, I understood that I could, as I wished, associate concepts that were a priori incompatible.
As well in my work as in my life in general.
To habitually occupy a place, to sleep, eat, work, live.
VACANCY, subst. Fem.
A period of time, more or less long, during which a person ceases all professional activity
to rest, relax, usually in a "nice place".
