WHAT

IS
                  ? 

#Touchbyvls is the definition of Caribbean Modernism meets whimsy.  Our current body of work, #theUrchinCollection, is an expressive ode to nature. Our collectors are able to experience and co-create a magical world of prickly beauty, vivid colour and provocative contrast. The 3D profusion of spikes as well as the carved lace-like patterns in clay create a harmonious yet dynamic sense of style and heart, texture and edge, shadow and light. To touch and experience our work is to forever make a place for it in your senses. These are the objects you drink tea from, that you curl up under to read a good book,and that you share with the people you value. Whether holding an urchin sculpture, slowly enjoying the texture of its spikes; or pouring tea for friends with our Sea Egg teapot and cradling the warmth of our mugs, we thank you. Thank you for continuing a call and response that began with the inception of nature and her primordial spark. Thank you for taking the journey with us, for interacting with our work; for championing beauty; for sharing it with others; and for remembering to take time to simply be.

Peace and ONE Love,

                                     Victoria Silvera

A JAMAICAN ENTREPRENEUR'S STORY

This is the Official Entrepreneur seal from the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship Caribbean given to Victoria Silvera for official completion of their program as well as active membership.
Fractal and spiny urchin in assorted sizes with charcoal black, orange and red marble glazing

TOUCH BY VLS like many local SMEs started as a dream which was slowly brought to life through sheer will, innovation and support. Without family, the Branson Centre, JIPO, The Authentic Jamaica Competition, The JMA, JBDC, UNDP, our faithful clients, and this Pitch 2 Rich Competition right here, none of this would have been possible. Year 10 and we're still alive :) If you're a budding ART entrepreneur and you're reading this please look up all the resources I just mentioned but most importantly look into yourself and find that never ending reserve of creativity and strength that is your connection to the Universe.
