the maker: Ulla Kinzler

The objects I create are not perfect, as perfection is practically impossible to achieve - in any aspect of life. My objects rather have a soul, they tell a story and transmit a message.

A touch of La Mugletta for your and your friends‘ home. 

 

Here you will find functional and sculptural ceramic objects, inspired by the surrounding nature of our B&B. Whether MILLEFOGLIE from the "orto", from the fields or forest, EVERDAYS BEAUTIES beauties or an object made of  WHITE & BLACK GOLD, the opposing textures, like smooth vs rough, shiny vs opaque or glazed vs unglazed surfaces, add sensual dimensions to the objects and thus also to their content.  

 

All of these pieces are being designed and handcrafted in the "Officina" of B&B La Mugletta by the maker Ulla Mugler.

 

La Mugletta artistic ceramics - more than just pottery.
