The Story Behind bunglo‘s NEW Ceramic Collection
While traveling in Guatemala, I met a group of artisans that made ceramics using their native peacock painting technique.
They work alongside Lake Atitlán, over looking the color villages with a volcanic mountains in the background.
I spent the afternoon designing modern bath ceramics using turquoise, peach, navy and orange. I wanted to use their traditional peacock painting forms with a modern edge, just for your mid century chic vanity.
Having taken ceramic classes my whole life, I’ve always dreamt of turning my designs into a collection.
I’ve never been the best with making pieces on the wheel (AKA lopsided)… I ultimately looked forward to painting the pieces at the end 🙂 You know me – not your paint by numbers girl – more like your messy abstract painter. I was excited to be working with molds this time around!
I had a blast using their color palette to create modern bathroom decor. As a new collection to bunglo, it took almost an entire year to get these into production! I love the ever changing landscape of my job and endless opportunities to learn!
