Wow! Amazing what Ginger Geyer has been creating in creta rome's studio in the countryside near the lake of Bracciano. Taking her starting point from the wreaths of the 15th-century Della Robbia workshop, Ginger chose fruit growing in our garden for the four segments of her wreath: lemon, persimmon, grapes and pomogranates. With her extraordinary wit, she then combined a door knocker and Andrea della Robbia's Annunciation for the central element. There is even a nod to Caravaggio with the different stages of the maturation of the fruit. Can't wait to see it fired and painted!
