Inspired by Crochet


This decorative ceramic plate by artist Mirella Pipia depicts a view of Capo Zafferano from Mongerbino, both near Bagheria. Mirella’s mother, who I’ve met a few times in the shop in Bagheria, crochets. I have a feeling that the details on this plate are inspired by some of her needlework designs.

    Just exquisite! Such intricate detail and design. The scene in the center celebrates the sea. Beautiful

  2. What a beautiful plate. If her mother crochets like this, her designs must also be exquisite!

    1. Yes, they are. And now, you’ve inspired a future blog post!! 🙂
