Note: this is a blog where I share lots of art by all kinds of makers that inspire me. If you are looking for more info about The Pottery Parade, visit Instagram or this shop.
It’s been a while since I shared an update about my own ceramic adventures. But it’s definitely not because of a lack of them. Lots of things happened here these last few months. It involved unexpected happenings that moved me towards long studio nights, lots of clay, little computer time and a whole bunch of hecticness altogether. Now things are starting to settle down and I’m slowly starting to realize where I am at this point. The Pottery Parade, which I started two years ago, has become a very important part of my life and is now a main part of my little business. And considering that LOVE creating ceramics I couldn’t be more exited!
Cups, plates and dishes, embellished with all kinds of animals and botanicals in blue. Aren’t Becca Jane Koehler’s ceramics gorgeous? I’m so in love with the playful and whimsical style of her illustrations! Each of them seems to perfectly fit the ceramic piece it’s applied on.
Note: I sell my ceramics via my Etsy shop, not on my website 🙂 I am currently sold out but will be adding new items soon. All shop updates are announced via Instagram.
When I opened my blog this morning I realized that I was still enjoying the late summer sun in the garden at the time of writing my last post. I can’t believe that it’s been more than a month since I shared my last update and I’m so happy to be back! ArtisticMoods had a little blog break. I decided to do this so I could spend more time on my ceramics, which I felt needed more of my devotion after a year in which so much has happened. I was a bit nervous about the break, but I must say: I’m glad that I did it.
Before I start sharing art I love again, here’s an update on what I’ve been doing in my blog break:
New ceramics crush: vases, tiles, tea bags, envelopes and many more playful creations by Kesemy Design. Beautiful and elegant handmade shapes, embellished with colorful glazes and whimsical illustrations for a delightful finishing touch. Love!
New ceramics crush: folk birds, dachshunds, flowers, feathers and more clay goods by Marina Andrin. Sculpted with highly detailed textures and adorned with colorful patterns. And the best part: they are wearable too!
Based in Novi Sad, Serbia, Marina Andrin is a jewelry designer who loves to create little characters that each tell stories on their own. Besides pendants, her pieces are also available as earrings and brooches (this little bear is my favorite!)
After sharing lots of Ceramic Gift Guides these last few months, its time to put a spotlight on some other crafty goods that have caught my eye lately. Art prints, wallpapers, hand-woven wall hangings and temporary floral tattoos to celebrate summer in style. Oh, and some ceramics too of course 🙂 All of the items are currently available online and clicking the links will lead you directly to the shopping spots. Enjoy!
I did a little happy dance when I stumbled upon these delightfully illustrated ceramics by artist Alex Sickling. Totes, plates and oh my, those little worm ornaments are the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while. Love!
All of the items below are currently available in Alex’s Etsy shop. To see more, follow Alex on Instagram.
