Behind JeezVanilla hides Adriana Bellet, a spanish girl
living in Madrid who fell in love with her grandma’s old crockery,
went to London and while drinking thousands of cups of tea
she graduated as a surface designer.
Two collections of her work are now available
at TSCHAU TSCHÜSSI:
Retro People is a collection of espresso cups and mugs
with illustrations inspired in lost vintage photographs,
found mainly in flea markets.
The illustrations are hand drawn with ink and then
digitalized to be reproduced.
Retro People is an ongoing collection, to which new faces
are continually added to the family.
Based in old-school nautical tattoos, Sailor’s Brew is
a collection of breakfast tableware. Each piece features
a different tattoo inspired in the designs of the golden age
of tattoo art (late 1800 till’ 1950s). Mixing sailing imaginary
with the art of tea and coffee drinking, the designs have a naive
and romantic feel.
