    I am so happy with this paper box. It is so well crafted. They shipped the item immediately, communicated with me quickly when I had questions, and the paper box got to me earlier than I expected. They take such care in their creations and their customers. I will definitely be buying more from them. (I already bought one of their hand made ribbon books).

    These note cards are SO beautiful! Each one has a different design, with vibrant colors and hefty paper. They are a perfect addition to any gift, at a great price. These arrived with the other items I had ordered, and everything was packed and individually wrapped with obvious care. All arrived in perfect condition. So happy!

    This ribbon journal, like the other one I bought in another color, is absolutely beautiful! I hadn't seen anything like it, with its intricate binding. I gave this one to a friend visiting from abroad. The texture of the fabric and the paper are unbeatable and I had not been able to find anything of this quality in the boutique shops of Boston and New York. I can't believe the incredible price.

    I was amazed at how quickly the shipment arrived, in just a few days, much earlier even than Etsy estimated. This journal is absolutely stunning. I have never seen any like it, with the beautiful ribbon binding. I gave it to one of my best friends as a gift and she loved it! The texture of the fabric and the paper are unbeatable and unlike anything I could find in Boston or New York. You can tell that it is handmade and one of a kind.

    I bought two of these small bowls to use as candle holders. Each one is unique, and they go perfectly together. They bring serenity and warmth to our living area. I love the colors, and the different glazes -- the inside of the bowl reflects the light of the candles while the outside is a beautiful matte. The neutral tones make it easy to combine with nearly any existing furniture. Love them!

    I gave this notebook to my fiancée and he absolutely loved it! The colors of and feel of the fabric and accent paper are both elegant and masculine. He uses it every day at work -- his colleagues even comment on it. The folding magnet closure adds an extra touch and keeps the notebook from being damaged as he carries it around in his briefcase. Perfect gift!

    The texture, design, and construction of the box is of the highest quality, and perfect to add a bit of flair to my desk. The fabric is lovely, and the design reminds me of a starry night. Beautiful!

    What a special, beautiful note card. I have never seen any card like it. I gave it to my mom for her birthday, and she was amazed and so impressed. I love the design, colors, and the high quality of the paper. This is unique and unlike anything I have ever found in papyrus or any other stationary store. And it's at an even better price. Gorgeous!

On Etsy since 2016

Art is a presence that enriches life

An object is meant to be used, but above all, to be loved: you enjoy touching it, taking it with you, giving it as a gift to your loved ones, and putting it in a special place. It speaks in a language you understand. If soft and serene, it accompanies you. If vivacious and lively, it cheers you up. If enigmatic and evocative, it allows you to dream…

Trained in drawing, dance, architecture, and design, and permanently in love with art through history, mother and daughter, we deeply enjoy working with our hands, shaping objects that make us happy, which are a pleasure to contemplate, and enrich our daily lives with their warmth, textures, line and color.

Ars Ikasia is the home of our two souls. Angélica delimits empty spaces and paints in time, building ceramics that embellish their surroundings, and may shelter little treasures such as stones, seashells, jewels or flower bouquets. Silvana designs and binds expressive and moving objects whose pages invite us to write about us and our passions, inspire us to reflect on and remember, to draw our ideas and preserve our dreams. Either in clay or in paper, our artworks are destined to happily fit in your life and delight your senses and your heart.

    Art is vital, it summarizes what we are and reveals what is unkown to us. I love working with my hands, being an instrument and witness of this process, creating ceramic pieces that signify, move, and evoke, hoping they will find a place in your life.

  • Silvana Verdini

    Owner, Designer, Bookbinding Artist

    I am passionate about our human ability to imagine and create beauty. I design and bind by hand unique objects for a multitude of uses, with the hope of enriching how you express yourself on paper and help you treasure your own story.
