Taza modelo Cala

En un intento de fusionar dos de mis grandes pasiones,  cerámica y jardinería,  los caminos del arte me han llevado a crear esta taza de café con su cuchara ( complemento imprescindible para visualizar el conjunto ), un diseño original inspirado en la flor ( espata ) de las Calas o Lirios de agua.

Arcilla blanca horneada a 1050ºC, decorada con esmaltes cerámicos en bicocción.

I would like to dedicate this post to my dear friend  Amy Myers,  a wonderful and versatile artist (ceramics,  painting,  photography ….  and also blogger)
Amy,  with her sister  Sarah Myers,  are a reference for me  in the mysterious world of social networks … and a good friends.

    • Llevaba un tiempo buscando una pieza en la que unir las flores ( soy una voluntariosa jardinera) con la cerámica, el diseño de la taza aporta una utilidad que no esperaba, vamos, que me salió genial!!
      Muchas gracias Verónica, otro abrazo para ti.

    • Muchas gracias Hélène!! me alegra de verdad que te guste, es un diseño un poco arriesgado, pero me puede mi pasión por las flores…
      Un abrazo.

    Dear Belén, I was enjoying your post with the wonderful cala lily – such a marvelous idea, and the spoon so perfectly completes the concept! And then I saw the dedication… and I wanted to cry a little… so kind and thoughtful of you…!! Many, many thanks, my friend!!

    • Do not think it was easy to merge in a post: ceramics, flowers, photography … but I think the result is acceptable, a new functional design inspired by a beautiful flower, humble but beautiful🙂
      Thank you very much Amy, I’m so glad to know that you like !!
      The dedication is sincere, you are a great artist and a wonderful friend;)
      A big hug.

    • Muchas gracias Fabio, eres muy amable!!
      Thank you so much, I like to design functional pieces, but not always achieve good results, this mug think it’s a good idea…
      Best regards.

    • Fin dall’inizio era un’idea un po ‘rischioso … ma ora sono contento del risultato.
      Penso che può essere molto divertente per un tavolo da giardino🙂 Sono un giardiniere appassionata.
      La ringrazio molto per sostenere i miei disegni fantasiosi :)) abbracci !!

    • Muchas gracias, no tenía mucha confianza en este diseño pero cada día me gusta mas … una preciosa cala dispuesta para servir el desayuno :))
      Un abrazo Ilargia.

    • Muchísimas gracias Zark, no veas como me animas, a veces me meto en “berenjenales” de los que no tengo claro el resultado, en esta ocasión estoy muy contenta con mi taza-cala, me parece divertida y funcional a partes iguales🙂
      Un abrazo!!

    • Muchas gracias, eres un cielo!!
      Me parece una idea muy divertida para una taza, perfecta para un café en el jardín🙂 … mejor aún si es verano.
      Bicos.

    • Muchas gracias M.C., me alegra que te guste, es un diseño muy alegre!!
      Ponga una flor en su mesa … a la hora del café🙂🙂
      Vă mulțumesc foarte mult … si toate cele bune!!

  2. È bellissima! Penso che potresti creare questo tipo di tazze da vendere in set di due… Moltissimi fiori si prestano per questo (Hibiscus, tulipano…) Non ho mai visto questo tipo di “espressione artistica” che può essere utilizzata come tazza… semplicemente incantevole!
    Un bacio :-)claudine

    • Mi piace molto il di fiori e giardinaggio, con questa ispirazione iniziato a modellare queste tazze, l’idea di realizzare questi splendidi fiori in una ceramica che è utile e decorare la nostra tavola mi affascina🙂
      E ‘una grande idea, penso che sarà venduto in gruppi di due o tre tazze …
      Cosa ne pensi di un piccolo piatto con lo stesso colore verde delle foglie ??
      La ringrazio molto, Claudine, sono contento che ti piace il mio “esperimento” mi incoraggia a continuare !!!
      Un grande abbraccio.

      • Certamente l’idea di un piatto per torta o dolcetto a forma di foglia è sicuramente perfetta se abbinata alla tazzina… lascia correre la tua fantasia! Sul web ne ho trovate diverse, questa in particolare è carina ma più complessa e non si addice all’idea di abbinarla alla “calla bianca”
        Un grande bacione :-)c

      • Grazie per il vostro aiuto, sto ancora lavorando sul piatto … non posso decidere
        Io so che devo dare il tempo per la mia immaginazione, ma l’idea delle tre parti (piatto, tazza e cucchiaio) sembra così buona.
        Grazie ancora per aver dedicato del tempo (che immagino limitato) a superare i miei dubbi e insicurezze artistico🙂
        Abbracci e buon fine settimana!

    • Jajaja, buen juego de palabras, la verdad es que se prestaba🙂
      Muchísimas gracias, me alegra que te guste …una flor con el café, parece divertido!!
      Un abrazo.

    • Hola Eva, muchísimas gracias, a que van a ser unos cafés muy alegres los servidos en esta taza :))
      Para mi es la mejor de las inspiraciones, constantemente me ofrece nuevas ideas, y yo no me resisto a intentar crearlas…
      Abrazos y buen fin de semana, disfrútalo que ademas es largo.

  3. Beautiful and it is a very fine idea. My same flowers are on flower in my garden ! They are very great this year because winter was mild without great freezing. I can understand Spanish reading it but i am not able to speak it, i never learned it. It’s why i speak English ! Best wisches to you. Lise.

    • Salut Lise, je vous remercie beaucoup pour l’utilisation de l’anglais … Je suis une catastrophe en utilisant votre langue :))
      I appreciate your kind comments, it is a complicated design that I did not feel very safe … I appreciate your support !!
      It is a beautiful flower, in my land is underappreciated (being a very common plant), but for me has a stunning beauty, with a spectacular white !!
      Greetings and happy weekend.

      • I well understand your French and don’t be affraid my English is not at all perfect. The arum flower is magesteuse , here it is not at all a common plant and is very popular with florists in flower arrangements. All the best to you, and have a Nice week-end. Is Belèn your first name ? Do you know which is your first name in French ? Friendly. Lise.

      • In my area they have introduced other varieties, with colors like pink, yellow … which are very popular right now. I prefer this type, with its beautiful white color.
        My name is Maria Belen, but always use Belén … is the name of the place where Jesus was born (according to Christian tradition)
        Really my first name would be María, but only use it when I try administrative issues🙂
        Kind regards Lise.

      • Thanks for the explanation. We find Yellow flowers or pink, even black (almost) but 2 years later they become white ! And when the flowers are in colors, the plants are smaler. Have a Nice evening and a Nice sunday too dear Belén. Friendly. Lise.

      • True, the colors varieties are small and delicate, this is a strong plant with large leaves, she likes the wet ground …
        Thank you very much for your good wishes, wish the same for you my dear friend !!!

    • Thank you so much !!
      It seems a bit crazy idea, a cup-flower, but I can assure you that the more I see … I like most🙂
      I think I needed to show it, to convince myself and to continue designing … (insecurities of artists)
      Have a good weekend.

    • Thank you very much Sue, you’re very kind to my little works🙂 … for me it is always a pleasure to stop at your beautiful blog and visit you !!
      Have a good and peaceful week.

  4. As always, so beautiful! I loved the idea of making the leaf as the handle of the cup. A perfect blend of talent, skill and creativity. I wish your day to be as beautiful as your creation. Take care mi hermoso amigo🙂

    • I’m glad you like the idea of the leaf …
      My intention was to introduce the green color of the plant in my cup, and this was a good solution🙂
      Thank you very much for your kind comment Prateek, encourages me to continue 😉
      Have a nice weekend my friend !!

  5. I should comment a lot more throughout your posts Belén as your work is fun and you have great ideas, but I do have to comment about this beautiful lily cup. It’s brilliant ! Well done and thanks for showing it on this post.😀❤

    • Thank you so much Ralph, you’re so kind🙂
      Sometimes one of my crazy ideas goes well and that’s when nice pieces like this appear …
      I love these water lilies, are so spectacular with its bright white :))
      A big hug Ralph.

    • Muchísimas gracias Aquileana … una bonita flor a la hora del café :))
      Disfruta tu también de un buen fin de semana!!
      Abrazos.

  6. Your calalilly is elegant & very unique. Love your work, as always.
    I know I am slow getting around lately, because I’m on a TV project. However, as soon as the series is over, I’ll be blogging a lot more often.
    Take care, Belén, and big {{hugs}} to you!

    • Ohh, a TV project, sounds great … exciting !!
      Thank you very much Resa, I also have problems with my time, I need more long days🙂
      I dedicate little time to blog and lots of time to work😦 but my economy needs it!
      A big hug and good luck with your project.

  7. Magnifica taza para posar los labios. Muy buena inspiración; la armonía y positividad del espacio que te rodea, hace que tus creaciones sean místicas y con un bonito toque de cuento. Felicidades por tu excelente trabajo.
    Me alegra saludarte, hoy he tenido un ratito para visitar los blog y saludar.
    Un beso y un fuerte abrazo Belén.

    • Hola Julia, yo también me alegro de saludarte. la llegada del verano con sus bodas, bautizos, comuniones, etc… hace que las tareas en el taller se multipliquen y las jornadas se vuelven interminables, mis apariciones por el blog se vuelven esporádicas :))
      Muchas gracias por tu amable comentario, lo cierto es que es una taza perfecta para un cuento, la sensación de tomar el té en una flor es insuperable🙂 me atrae la idea de seguir inspirándome en las flores ….
      Besos y abrazos.

  8. ¿Sabía usted que nuestra Kala (que se pronuncia casi como tu Cala) significa un pez. Las maravillas de la naturaleza como su taza de flores por la bahía. Deje que el encanto viven en las palmas.

    Viaje gratificante en el velero de la ceramica
    YR

    • Es curiosa la vida de las palabras y sus significados!
      Muchas gracias por acompañarme en este viaje por la cerámica y por tu impresionante español🙂
      Saludos cordiales YR.

    • Thank you so much, the idea of drinking tea in a cup-flower seems so funny … it is a risky design but I’m satisfied with the result.
      Have a wonderful Sunday !! … And sorry for the delay in my replies.
