The Holiday season is upon us, and that means one thing at Sorelle: The Holiday Collection is back. This year's Collection features eight categories of great gifts with an average price under $1000 - from paintings and drawings to ornaments, ceramic sculpture and serveware, scarves and so much more. Shop the whole Holiday Collection here or read on for our breakdown, so you can make this year the Artstiest Holiday season ever.
Paintings and Drawings
The paintings and drawings in the Gift Collection are all one-of-a-kind, handmade works of original art in a variety of styles and media. Some pieces are on stretched canvas, some are on paper, some are framed and others are unframed - you get the picture (... no pun intended). One thing that's for sure with this collection, though, is that there's something for everyone. Abstract and traditional art fans alike will find something to love in Paintings and Drawings.

This year's featured sculptures range from traditional ceramic vessels to sculptural pumpkins and even lit trees. All handmade by Connecticut-based artist Jon Puzzuoli, some of these sculptures even have a crystalline glaze - a special ceramic glaze in which zinc-silicate crystals grow inside the glaze while it's still very hot, giving the aesthetic of a "crystal" pattern over the surface of the piece. Starting at $200, put that finishing touch on your home before you go into "host mode," or make it a gift!

Our collection of Prints includes both open and limited edition prints that our Curators have hand selected as perfect options for gifting. The great thing about prints? They're customizable. Open edition prints generally have the option to select whether you want your print on paper or canvas, and you have the option to select your size and frame type and/or color for both open and limited editions. So - you can customize your print to suit, and give a gift as special as that special someone.
We're pleased to announce the official launch of hand-painted ornaments in our Holiday Gift Collection! Our first Ornaments collection features ten hand-painted contemporary barn and nautical land and seascapes by Carol Young. These ornaments are 4" in diameter and are all signed by the artist on the back of the panel. Colorful and nostalgic, these small paintings can liven up a tree or stay hanging all year long.

Here is where we put the "FUN" in "functional." Another "first" in our Holiday Collection, our new Ceramic Serveware category includes a whole host of sculptural items for the kitchen and dining room by Jon Puzzuoli. Handmade honey pots, dip bowls, salt pigs, olive oil pourers, and mugs will make your holiday table look anything but ordinary, and gifting them? If you can part with them, then sure.

Textiles and Weavings
The Textiles and Weavings collection is for fans of fiber art. Dolores Tema has created weavings that hang on the wall for a more "fine art" feel, but the collection also includes her handmade scarves, which we like to think of as "wearable art." You can learn more about the inspiration behind Tema's scarves, and why she refers to them as "Toni's" on the blog.

Our Throw Pillows are a gifting favorite, with some of our signature original artworks printed onto premium, linen-feel pillows in differing sizes. For those who love art so much they want to sit next to it, nap on it, play peek-a-boo with their dog with it - here is the solution. Includes a shape-retaining insert, machine-washable case, and a hidden zipper! Select your size, and we have it made on-demand.

Gift Cards and Greeting Cards
Last but absolutely not least, is where we keep our gift cards and greeting cards. Our greeting cards feature original hand-drawn illustrations by artist Elizabeth Iadicicco, which are printed on 110lb matte cover stock. And, dare we say it, the piece de resistance! An e-gift card - because art is really personal. And sometimes, the best gift is one they pick.
