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.
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: 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!
It has been six months since I launched my ceramics shop, The Pottery Parade. I realized this the other day when I was browsing through my previous posts about my clay adventures. It is so much fun to see all the types of ceramics I created over these last few months; the things I have experienced with and how, even though I’ve been making pots with faces from the beginning, they have somehow changed over time as well.
