Welcome on board – crazy creatures BABOOSHI .Lithuanian autor – Domante Olekaite-Vaiciene – presents funny, naive and mildly mischievous creatures.
They have their roots in mossy forests, but are presently living among us and watching over our busy lifestyles.
They have a sweet tooth and are particularly keen on candy and pancakes.
Babooshies are tea and coffee holders, each of them individually and carefully hand sculpted from clay and covered in glaze.
Each babooshi has a characteristic pair of pointy ears and a short cone-shaped tail, a snout and watchful bulging eyes. Each cap is a removable top of the holder for storing tea, coffee or other loose goodies.
Occasional slight imperfections and marks left by the handcrafting process make each babooshi a unique and charming personality inviting you to a hot cup of your favourite drink.
“People who get to know me first through my ceramics are quite surprised to learn that I’m actually an IT engineer. I graduated from school as a humatarian student but made a U turn into computer science speciality. Growing as an IT specialist it was when I started feeling an urge to counterbalance it with my artistic side and find an equilibrium, because I’ve always felt I am two-fold, reasonable but at the same time illogical, meticulous but also hopelessly absent-minded. Ceramics is my current passion. While I first got acquainted with clay back in primary school, it was only over a decade later that I found myself fully and consciously enjoying it. So now when I’m finished testing user inter-faces, I happily switch to moulding troll faces.”
