In the semi-darkness, catch a glimpse of the open mouth, framed by a pair of ruddy cheeks. The mother caresses that little face and, as if to stop that moment of infinite gratitude and sweetness, goes to her studio and makes a clay model of it.
You are in Bolzano on a random day in 1950 and have just witnessed the birth of the Angel of Thun.
Like the most beautiful works of art, Thun was born from a moment's inspiration. The famous Angel- now known in every corner of the world as a symbol of the South Tyrolean city - was followed by the creation of teddy bears and ladybugs, butterflies, hearts, balloons, and flowers, in a succession of collections now inspired by nature, now by the traditional values of the Thun house, each characterized by the softness of the shapes and the scrupulous choice of raw materials.
Since then, the creative workshop run first by Lene and Otmar Thun, then by their son and grandson, has continued to create unique collections capable of giving you great emotions.
Creations of Thun include gifts, beautiful and functional household items, decorations, and sculptures that soften and warm the heart. Choose an original gift, and surprise those you love with a ceramic poem that makes their spaces joyful and magical. Your loved ones will be happy and remember you.
