Coming from the Stars – Christmas Collection
I can’t really explain why I love Christmas so much.
I think it’s something related to my childhood.
As a child, I never fully experienced the holidays atmosphere , due to various vicissitudes of life.
Growing up, it’s like I took this lack behind me, and tried to fill it through a single faded memory: a series of lights on a tree.
I remember them particularity well. They were composed of a glass stick filled with water, which – through the lights playing, created bubbles in the glass.
I can’t explain it, but that vision enchanted me and hypnotized me. It carried away everything that was around me.
“Coming from the Stars” is my first collection of Christmas fabric. The name come sfrom the italian “Tu scendi dalle stelle”, which sounds different, but the meaning is the same.
I tried to convey in my drawings the fable that I like to live in this time of year .
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime.”
—Laura Ingalls Wilder
