Maria's Ideas
Established 1982
Pittsburgh, PA
Maria started designing art for Sarris Candies in the 1990's. The first projects were 2 ceiling domes, 2013 murals for the chocolate castle room, next the ice cream parlour, the ice cream cone window toppers, five bejeweled animals, four murals featuring their seasonal candies, Pretzel People, another ceiling dome, 2 large candy columns, three murals featuring their candies and Sarris Candies castle installed in 2018. Many of the little candy pieces, chocolates and ice cream cones were hand crafted with clay and paper mache by Maria, hand painted, some rewrapped in their foil papers then applied to the murals. The murals and animals are embellished with thousands of authentic crystals, jewels, and colorful adornments~ each glued one at a time by Maria as she met happy, curious customers while they watched and enjoyed their sweet treats!
