Traditional models' bank


The folk artisans, Carmina and Peter Brâncoveanu, managed to make a one of a kind product: painting on ceramics by installing old models from the ie (Romanian traditional shirt) and seams from the Romanian area. The final product is a fantastic one, because the patterns on the ie goes to the ceramics from where they return to the ie and the seams. For 15 years, the two creators managed to gather around 6.000 models they transposed on the ceramics. The entire work is the object of some fairs and exhibits in the country and abroad.

Saving the first ie

?I started by saving an ?ie? of our great grandmother. The ie was deteriorating, we tried to save its colour, its drawing and its spirit. It turned out great and we showed it to our close friends. They also wanted to save their roots and to recover the traditional clothing. We have experienced impressive, living moments, because we saw our grandparents going to church and how they used to respect God by keeping themselves clean, nice and dignified. The traditional clothing was a connection between human and divinity?, told us Mr. Peter Brâncoveanu.

The path of the traditional pattern

?Now we got to 6.000 models transferred on the ceramics from old seams and from the ie. We are living an amazing thing, because there are a lot of sewers asking us to give them access to our traditional models? bank to use them and return them to seams. This gives us the feeling that we have not lived in vain for 15 years and that this circle is closing. We started with the saved ie, with the model that got to the ceramics and to its return from the ceramics on the seams. It is truly fantastic?, told us the Brâncoveanu family about the activity carried out so far.

Specificity of the area

Carmina Brâncoveanu is the one who manually paints the model taken over from an old traditional cloth or from the seams and manages to make veritable works of art. The models are gathered from several areas of the country, each of them containing identification elements specific to the area. At first, the paintings were made on paper or directly on the canvas. Later on, after a lot of practice, they got on the ceramics.
