It is a wonderful time of the year for most of the people. Christmas approaching, the excitement of the festive season. Almost everyone has some sort of a plan for that special day and many of us already started to get organized with their gifts.
However, the situation in Rising Star workshop is slightly different. While we are trying to fulfill the orders, we are thrilled as we finalized some of the prototypes of our 2018 collection. The pioneers I should say.
Please allow me to give you some idea of what we have in the box for yourselves in 2018.
The first release is called 'The Walk', a design I feel extremely excited about. An advanced illustration of an elephant on gourd which was something I wanted to get done for a very very long time. I am sure I will be detailing all these designs in the future so I am providing you with enough visuals and information to have an idea about.
The second release is called 'Tarantism'. Dominant blues, a few evil eyes and strange vertical dividers along the gourd. On a white background, we have fine airbrush work dividing the gourd into four different sections enriched with beadwork.
The Supernatural, The Wayward and the Red Dragon are three new designs which we developed to extend the options for designs like The Weirdo, The Extremist and A Phenomenal Purple, designs that got very popular in 2017 with fine airbrush work and hand painted gold color sections in between bizarre stripes on gold. We have added The Red Dragon for those who adore their red. The Supernatural for those who would like to
see something different under daylight and something different in the night time and The Wayward who are big into their elegance.
We also decided to focus on drill work and natural finish this year. We know that some of our customers love to experiment different colors and different sources of light with their gourd lamps. So we decided to develop a range of elegant designs which would reflect the color and the strength of the light source inside simply by eliminating the beadwork. Just drills and a natural varnish. Nepenthe is the pioneer. A stylish elegant gourd lamp delivering exactly what we wanted her to.
Our best seller in 2017 was an evil eye theme design which we
didn't give a name. She is a candidate to become the best seller of all times. We couldn't ignore this popularity so we have added two different gourd lamp designs to our collection with evil eye theme and same color combinations. We have added fine craftwork on the neck and eye sections making these new evil eye theme gourd lamps outstanding, striking and exquisite. I am so proud of these new designs.
And finally the third member of our popular mushrooms designs. In this version, we used a large gourd, added a large stripe on both sides of the gourd with fine drill and beading work and made the mushrooms bigger. Under daylight, this design which we called 'Shrooms' is wonderful purple and white.
We are committed to being the most progressive and productive gourd workshop in the world so keep an eye on this space as there is more to come..... Thanks for stopping by.
