Trunk vase & stump cup…

...let me tell you a little story about a Parisian street artist.

Last September when we strolled through the streets of Paris, the creative quater “Le Marais” I saw a charming young woman with her little vintage suitcase at the roadside. Her little stand has attracted me like a magnet. Her name was Jinjin, a japanese ceramic artist, selling some selected pieces of her beautiful ceramic and porcelain range. Some unique pieces with very special shapes, pure and raw inspired by natural surroundings. We immediately understood very well and shared our contacts. A nice little collaboration was born! Some weeks later I did the first order – some of my favorite pieces out of her range, the “trunk vase” together with two different shaped “stump cups”. A very special ceramic set for everyday uses, for coffee or tee, to use it as a vase or water jug, to plant some nice little cactus or other greens, it is something very unique and beautiful. She used some wood pieces to build a ceramic mold, you can recognize it in consideration of the surface, shape and structure. They came in two colors, black and white and now they are on stock again at HEIMELIG shop, just a small limited edition, these reasons are what makes it so special to me.


Further I wanted to show these pieces in a very special and creative way. I talked to my dear friend Josefin Hååg, she did the styling of these wonderful pictures and her friend Emily Laye was the was the professional behind the lens. Thank you dear girls for this successful project.

All in all I think it has become a very nice story and I am absolutely pleased if you like it as well.

So,… enjoy the pictures and happy shopping dear friends! Here is the link to my shop!

I found these amazing shots with Gertrud Hegelund here and I thought I could share some of them in combination with my current summer must-haves.

I am a hudge fan of denim, and I love the trend of blues wich is very present lately, this denim jacket by Mango is so edgy and really cool, hopefully soon in my wardrobe ;) Even the 501 Collection by Levi´s celebrates its booming comeback, I love these shorts most, they are so comfy…

“Black is the new white” – Max Lamb gave the Crockery collection a new color, Black Basalt. I’ve already fallen in love with the white collection, but the black version is unbeatable! More about these black beauties here at 1882 Ltd.

Sunnies by Ray Ban with transparent glasses and a golden frame, my summer must have – one on the top of the list!

Awww… this ceramic pot by Karin Erikkson, you can use it as a hanging pot as well, it is such a great shape and color, black again –  You know, I have this thing with black ceramics… I have already talked to her and my pot is on its way to ma´ house. If you fell in love too, please do not hesitate to contact her, she is so helpful and will despatch your order if you are not able to pick it up on your own.

Zara dress, Zara body and Mango shoes the whole Zara & also Mango collection is so cool at the moment! I could have nearly everything, unfortunately the weather in Austria is not that good, so summer order will have to wait a bit. But I highly recommend to browse through the collection, there are so many timeless and essential pieces to pimp your summer wardrobe!

So happy shopping dear guys!
