Hi Everyone! I hope you have had a chance to enjoy some wonderful summer activities! I have stayed home most of the time, which isn't like me. This time of year, I'm usually camping, visiting the beach, or hiking in our amazing Sierra Foothills. After the accident though, I felt like I had lost three months so I have been really focused on catching up and working on new designs.
Lately, I've been influenced by affirmations and positive quotes, so I've been incorporating some of my favorites into a new line. Below are a few I've made so far.
My first batch of "it is well with my soul." I just love this quote. I made them into pendants so they can be worn close to the heart. They need a different glaze for sure, one that highlights the font better. I changed the design to include a cute border.
These pendants are in their greenware state, I'm so excited to see them glazed! I plan on making more designs like this. If there is an affirmation or quote that you think would be a great addition, please let me know!
Latest designs fresh out of the kiln...
A new petal shape.
More yummy cherry blossoms.
Mandala, lotus and swirl charms and pendants.
First try at the "just breathe" quote.
A large flourish pendant.
These beads are supposed to be carved with lotus petals. Ugh...not quite as I had envisioned!
Also, I've been working on some porcelain cone ring holders. I like the swirl leaf base and the shape is good, but I wasn't going for little brown turds. Lol! I think spaced in my booth they won't look like turds in a toilet. Hahaha! I'm working on the glaze color. Any suggestions?
Alright ya'll, give it up for the husband!
and his very first pendant!!! Isn't it adorable?? It's so much fun watching him play with clay.
All of the above will be listed by the end of this week to our Etsy store here. Minus the turds. Haha!
Thank you for reading. I hope your were inspired to create!
