In the German and other European cultures, the mushroom is seen as a good-luck symbol - Glückpilz (Lucky Mushroom - colloquial "Lucky Duck, Dog, Devil, etc.") - and is "The Mushroom" of Christmas and the New Year, especially as a symbol of a blessing at the turn of the New Year. It honors a reverence of nature and the beauty of the forest - if you find one it is believed to bring you good fortune. It is acknowledged to be the most recognized mushroom on earth. This famous mushroom abounds in Christmas decorations, children's story books, and fairy tales.
As a good-luck symbol and a symbol respecting the beauty of nature the Amanita muscaria mushroom is a traditional ornament on German Christmas trees.

“Each piece by Facture Goods has been made with my own two hands. I love to combine different materials in interesting and unexpected ways. I work with hardwoods, clay and metals to create small batch kitchen wares, utensils and provisions with a “primitive modern” aesthetic. By creating work that is somewhat rough, even crude, I am able to get my voice and touch into the work easily.” Erin Fisher, developer of Facture Goods, Chicago.
