Caribbanese2: Miniature Musings

-Kaye Thomas Eichner

Caribbanese2: Miniature Musings by Kaye Thomas EichnerA continuation of Caribbanese: The fusion of Japanese and Caribbean cultures. I have married traditional Japanese ceramic forms with Caribbean culture and ideas.  For Miniature Musings, I wanted to focus on both the Christmas (it's just around the corner) and what makes our Caribbean Christmas so special in the islands: it's the little things!  

In the Caribbean, it is tradition to sing The Guavaberry Song, “Good morning, Good morning, I've come for my guavaberry,” on Christmas morning with family and friends.  Guavaberry rum is a delight and was originally put in Demijohns- large glass green bottles.  I have created  Guavaberry Rum Demijohn's for your Christmas!  Share it with friends and family this holiday.  I have, of course, created your guavaberry cups, they are the small ones!  Guavaberry rum is perfect for sipping!

It is, also, tradition to have some guavaberry bread and tarts.  This sweet treat is enjoyed by the young and old, alike.  The small green plates are for your delicate sweets.

Christmas in the Caribbean wouldn't be Christmas without some “American”  traditions, like Santa's milk and cookies on Christmas Eve.  The white larger tumblers are for Santa's milk and the small trays are for his cookies.  After all, Santa loves art, too.  Yes, Mrs. Claus can share them!

The little things, little ideas, little traditions become something so dear and worthy of celebration.  Celebrate your love of art, love of family, love of friends and most of all:  love of the little things!
