Project Description

CHOCOLATE MASKS COLLECTION

Celebrating the 30st  anniversary of their work & life in (mask) theatre,  Iva & Petar launched in 2009 a chocolate brand MY MASK featuring extraordinary CHOCOLATE MASK COLLECTION.
The brand was launched at the world’s biggest chocolate show Salon du chocolat Paris. Thousands of visitors and professionals from chocolate industry were ‘amazed / astonished’ by esthetic quality and originality of My Mask creations.

Collection features The Mask as a symbol  that expresses the diversity and richness of the human imagination.  A celebration of our desire to change, to transform, to reach out for our dreams and to re-invent ourselves. /promoting the Mask as one of those universal theatre Symbols that bridge cultures, generations and time.

MASKS, GOLD AND CHOCOLATE

Using only 2 ingredients: pure Chocolate, a “food of Gods”, and Gold, once called  ‘the elixir of life’ , the artists create magic evoking the ancient legends of the Masks…

All Masks are sculpted and designed in a variety of versions before a final mould is fashioned. The masks are cast delicately, in the finest  chocolate available.  Each mask is plated with 24 K edible gold – using the ancient technique of gilding, known by jewelry makers and painters, and customized by MyMask creators.

MY MASK BRAND

Ever since their debut at Salon du Chocolat 2009 in Paris, Iva & Petar chocolate masks have captured attention by press, chocolate-lovers and experts from the chocolate world. In less than a year they took part at a number of international chocolate events, such as Monaco 2010 en de Salon du Chocolat Marseille 2011; they have been featured in books about chocolate, in designers’ magazines and blogs about chocolate around the world. Chocolate masks have been introduced at art & luxury shops in a.o. Paris, Monaco, London, Dubai and Amsterdam.
