Unique martisor bloom at Wagner workshop

A collection which intends to reinterpret and vivify a Romanian tradition, the annual celebration Martisor, has gone on show at the Wagner Arte Frumoase si Povesti (Wagner Fine Arts and Stories) workshop.

Romanians celebrate Martisor on March 1 every year, marking the beginning of spring and new life blossoming. Boys give girls special tokens called martisor, which are decorative objects made from glass, porcelain or plastic in various shapes and sizes.

“Martisor objects have become ordinary over the last years, and are always mass produced. Their reinterpretation, as we propose it, means a return to femininity, freshness, and, last but not least, re-charging with the new energy with which craftsmen imbued these objects,” says artist Ana Wagner.

The collection at the Wagner workshop includes unique golden hand-painted martisor tokens. Pieces can also be found in other locations such as the Spazio store, Hilton art gallery and Kare store in Baneasa shopping mall.
