Easter decoration in the home and garden

Ideas for stylish Easter decoration in the garden

If you think of kitschy chicks flocked with plastic fibres or grimacing bunnies when you hear the word "Easter decoration", you are right to be creeped out by this term. It doesn't have to be, and above all it doesn't need to be, cheaply produced kitsch that decorates the house and garden at Easter time. These awful mass-produced goods have been up to their mischief long enough! Our tasteful and lovingly handmade products made of high-quality ceramics make your heart beat faster in spring and whet your appetite for the warm season. Especially outdoors, high-quality individual pieces blend harmoniously into the vegetation of the garden. It doesn't matter whether the ceramic highlights hang on the tree or stand on the ground - after all, when looking for Easter eggs, the entire garden is scrutinised particularly thoroughly.

The first ray of hope or April Fool's Day?

April does what it wants, they say. The changeable weather in this month has become proverbial. The month is the link between the late winter in March and the plump spring in May. So April is indeed good for some surprises. If the sun shines in the morning, it can suddenly snow in the afternoon. Ground frost, storms, hail and rain are the uncomfortable sides of the Easter month. Bright sunshine, mild evenings and the first temperatures above 20 degrees are the nice ones. Decorative objects for outdoors should be of excellent quality in order to withstand this unsettled weather mix. Our high-quality, handmade decorative ceramics for the outdoor area are not only an extraordinary eye-catcher, the caprices of the weather can't harm them anytime soon.

Individually crafted Easter decoration in the garden is a wonderful opportunity to welcome spring and sets colourful and stylish accents in the still bare, late-winter outdoor area.

Easter decorations in the garden - Personalising your own home

Every person is unique and therefore every home is also very individual.

Some people consciously want to switch off from the stressful everyday life and the cold outside world in their home and design their own four walls and also the corresponding outdoor area in an unagitated and quiet way so that they contribute to relaxation. Here, calm colours, clear shapes and often a minimalist style can be found. Blue and grey tones are reminiscent of the calming effect of the eternally undulating sea. Green in all its facets reflects the peace and power of a forest. The decoration remains deliberately minimalist so that individual objects can have an effect without overstimulating the viewer. The Easter decorations in the garden of these relaxation-seeking minimalists can be quite restrained and purist in their own sense. The calm, natural colours can easily disappear in lush, often green vegetation. Therefore, these objects should be placed in a prominent position where they can attract the eye without overwhelming the viewer. The terrace or garden path are ideal places for these decorative objects. The open space under a tree also brings a discreetly designed object into focus and allows it to harmonise with its surroundings.


Colourful for outdoor people

The fun-loving, sun-worshippers and Mediterranean fans have been looking forward to the warm season all year round, when life finally shifts outside again and the garden becomes a second living room. Here you will often find bright colours, Mediterranean plants and decorative objects such as terracotta elements and graphic patterns.

Sunshine kids love to experience the explosion of colours in spring and make the decoration of their garden cheerful and playful. Animals and plants are important style elements, especially in spring. The Easter season traditionally plays on the legends and myths surrounding the hare as messenger of the goddess of spring, birds as heralds of spring and chickens as purveyors of fertility symbols in the form of eggs. If you want to make your Easter decorations in the garden cheerful and colourful, perhaps for your children, you will find all kinds of pretty objects with loving details in these traditional symbols.

Unusual ceramics - It doesn't always have to be rabbits

The friends of the unusual like to design their living space and also the outdoor area a little differently than the neighbours around them. They may have a penchant for the macabre or love to play with crazy clichés. They too can put up interesting Easter decorations in the garden that may only reveal their connection to the spring festival at second glance. Insects are a wonderful alternative to the usual furbabies for adding springtime accents to the garden. Ants or bees are the inhabitants of every garden and especially the latter need our special protection to find enough living space. A decorative element with insects on it leaves a subtle hint that these useful inhabitants of the garden need our attention.

Fairy tales, interpreted in a new and somewhat more sober way, can also provide a wonderful stimulus for Easter decorations in the garden. The fairy tale themes do not have to be presented in a kitschy "they lived happily ever after" style. A dangerous wolf, scary crocodiles, there are no limits to the imagination. Macabre or unusual Easter decorations in the garden can be hidden in the vegetation and only reveal themselves to the observer at second glance.

Easter decoration in the garden - handmade with love

Raku, the special Japanese firing technique, has a long tradition in its home country. Yet it was not a Japanese who developed this technique during the Tensho period between 1573 and 1592. Where the roof tile maker Chojiro actually came from, however, is uncertain. What is certain, however, is that he developed the technique together with a master of the traditional tea ceremony called Sen No Rikyu and that his successor Jokei made roof tiles using this method for an imperial palace. The ruler was very pleased with this work and awarded the tile maker a lordly seal called Raku, which means "joy".

The thick-walled, low-fired ceramic pieces are particularly shock-resistant after completion, which is why they are especially suitable for both utility ceramics and decorative objects for outdoor use.

The typical raku glaze is fired at 900°C to 1,100°C and cracks when it cools. This effect is deliberate and accounts for the very special charm of Raku objects.

The perfectly imperfect-looking pieces, handmade with great attention to detail, are an eye-catcher on any occasion. Whether as a decorative object on the coffee table, as a modern vase, as utility ceramics or as seasonal outdoor decoration, Raku ceramics are a beautiful as well as long-lasting investment for many years. Raku pieces are also particularly suitable for Easter decoration in the garden. The natural temperature fluctuations in spring can quickly cause cheaply produced, conventional ceramics to break. However, the handmade individual pieces in raku quality do not weather and give the garden a very personal touch. Easter decorations in the garden made from lovingly handmade individual pieces set any garden apart from the usual monotony and create stylish accents that will give pleasure for a long time thanks to their excellent quality.

Easter decorations - where does the tradition come from?

Easter is considered by Christians to be the feast of Jesus' resurrection. They celebrate the victory of life over death.

But also non-Christians and all our ancestors celebrated the new beginning of life after the long winter in spring. This time, when seemingly dead, bare trees suddenly shine in fresh green, when colourful blossoms sprout overnight from the still cold ground, when almost all animal children are born and the birds return from the south, promises pure joy of life. The symbols of the Easter season are symbols of spring. Animals such as rabbits and birds are regarded as messengers of spring; they are said to have been sent out by the goddess of spring in ancient times to announce the awakening of nature to mankind. Eggs are considered fertility symbols and are traditionally dyed in the colours of nature. Flowers, fresh green branches and blossoms augur the warm season. The lamb has both a Christian reference and a general reference to young, newborn life. All these motifs are ideal suggestions for life-affirming Easter decorations in the garden, reminding visitors and viewers already in early spring that it will not be long now before life can shift outside again.

Fairy tale motifs are also a pretty alternative to the usual depictions of animal children, as most fairy tales are set in the forest and in nature and take plants, water and trees as their model.

The colours of the Easter decorations are based on nature. Fresh, bright pastel colours often dominate. But those who like it calmer will also find lovingly produced objects in the spectrum of earthy tones. Green like fresh leaves and bright blue like the spring sky also make very good colours for Easter decorations in the garden.
