Far & Wide

Balocoloc Artisans of Venice have been makers of authentic Venetian masks for over 40 years. Each mask is hand-made and decorated using the traditional processes of the Venetian mascherero.

Murano Maestros blow glasses using the murine technique with silver leaf and filaments, which dates back to the 16th century. They are called goti in the Venetian dialect and were originally used as drinking glasses but also make gorgeous vases and floating candle holders.

Ardmore ceramic artists create whimsical designs of African flora and fauna which have inspired luxury silk apparel by Hermès, wall coverings by Cole & Son, and fabric designs for tabletop and soft furnishings. At WMODA we have a range of Ardmore pillows in luxurious silk, velvet and cotton as well as table runners and napkins.

Moorcroft Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent uses time-honored skills, including traditional tube-lining techniques, to create tactile vases with intricate patterns in jewel-like colors. The work of the modern Moorcroft studio designers is avidly collected in many parts of the world.

Jerome Reine has reinvented wood sculpture by revitalizing dead trees in sculptural form. His elegant wooden handbags are carefully shaped, hollowed out, and polished to create a light-weight portable work of art. They are sensual and pleasing to handle and attract interest and curiosity.
