GREAT SEA AND TRAVELLING STORIES IN A SINGLE COLLECTION
TAKE ME WITH YOU is a collection inspired by the Mediterranean, its colors, vistas, horizons, light, scents, fruits and – stories. Many think of old Mediterranean as a sort of an ancient highway that has been connecting three continents and was traveled day and night, by people, ideas and things. That is exactly how TAKE ME WITH YOU was conceived – as a treasury of “transportable objects that tell stories“. All in all, this is an outstandingly sunny collection, fully charged with Mediterranean colors and light.
Small and big pictures. The colorist blast of the most beloved Be Craft motifs on a transparent basis, that can be hanged and thus turned into true glass mobiles. All these pictures look both solo or as a group installation.
Plates. Plates with famous Venetian millefiori or murini application. Or without those, in diverse colors and some very contemporary options. Versatile. This pieces can be a decoration on their own or the stunning empty-pockets. This way, even a little bit of chaos can be stylish!
Small and big fish. The sea without fish is like the sea without salt. Therefore our Mediterranean-inspired collection comprises the entire shoals of fish. With their funny and various characters, colors, and sizes. Stone base prevents fish from swimming too far away.
Magnets. With sailboats. Or millefiori application. Playful on 24/7 base.
Sailboats and sailing ships. Our sails are tailored, just like those from real big ships. However, we do not cut them from the canvas but from the glass. And all those spinnakers, jibs and genoas are constantly glimmering, lifted by the wind and pointing at horizon, regardless of their placement.
Ships. On a wooden base. With chimneys breathing out merry white clouds. Every ship that has ever sailed the seas had her unique character. So do ours.
Small houses. In a row, with an occasional bell tower. On a painted wood base. Always facing the sun. Built-in the entire color palette, from deep and saturated to totally transparent tones. Dream houses. The memories of places, dialects and that very special rhythm of Mediterranean days.
Houses and ships. Two popular Be Craft motifs found a way to pair up, adding humor to a delicate balance between reality and perspective. An absolutely playful combination that can be multiplied to achieve spectacular effects.
Small, bigger and really big angels. Made of Murano glass and ceramics. With monochrome wings or wings glistening with millefiori elements. In all colors. Angels’ ruffled and absolutely unique haircuts will delight you, from any point of view.
Clocks. Table clocks, with a stone base. Immersed into waves or safely anchored ashore, guaranteeing seldom-serious hours and minutes.

DID YOU KNOW?
Glass objects have been traveling across the Mediterranean for over 3 millennia. Archeologists use glass objects to uncover antique trading routes and production development. By carefully studying the found glass artifacts and their chemical compounds, they stumbled upon some surprising discoveries which tell the stories of glass that traversed the thousands of miles, on ships and in caravans. Raw glass from a production site in the Levant would find its way to an old Roman city on the north of Apennine Peninsula or to a Christian basilica on Cyprus. Another time raw glass form Northern Adriatic would sail all the way down to Cartage, to the African shores and sometimes far into the hinterland. Just imagine a biography of an ancient Roman bowl that ended up in Saharan desert! We find it really interesting that glass was first used only as decoration. Ladies of yore simply adored necklaces and other jewelry made from glass. It wasn’t until later on that glass became widely used as a functional material that was transformed into tableware, windows, mosaics, votive gifts for temples and much else.
