Chic, Chic

July 30, 2015

I’m perplexed by people who buy a painting because it matches their pouf. I feel that the art and objects we surround ourselves with deserve more compelling stories than that. One of my favorite things, given to us as a wedding gift by our friend and koumbara, Stephanie is a life-size ceramic chicken, once used for transporting wine and vinegar. These chickens, (or are they roosters, I’m not sure) were traditionally made for Nicola Fasano from the village of Grottaglie in Puglia. I don’t remember how Jason and I flew home with it from London, but I do know that it’s had pride of place at our table for years now. It’s unique and charming, and has a great sense of humour, much like Steph.
