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!
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:
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.
Meanwhile at The Pottery Parade: I’ve been working on some new clay characters and I’m quite pleased with how most of them came out of the kiln last week. Scroll down below to see a selection of my latest creations!
I’ll keep this update short. One thing I do want to mention I that I have been spending a lot more time at Studio Noot & Zo these last few weeks and it’s to be expected that there will be more shop updates than usual in the next months. Although I’m still experimenting a lot, I feel like I am moving towards a structure and style more and more, which feels great!
The pots below are now sold. Follow the Pottery Parade on Instagram to find out when the next shop update will be!
I’ve been keeping myself quite busy with ceramics these last few weeks. Sculpting, painting, improving my pottery wheel skills and mostly, experimenting with techniques and patterns. Today I finally added a collection of new ceramics to The Pottery Parade’s shop. And although the selection is quite small, I was so super excited to see how they turned out!
It has almost been two months since I launched my own ceramics shop called The Pottery Parade. And as I added a small batch of new planters to the collection just now, it’s time for a little update! I know that I’ve been saying it quite some times lately but here it is again: the more hours I spend working with clay at the lovely Studio Noot & Zo, the more I love creating ceramics. Even though I have been spending so many time there recently, I still consider myself a newbee. But the feeling I get when a freshly baked pot comes out of the kiln.. oh boy.
[Update: only one pot of the new collection is still available. Thank you so much for your love (I cannot believe how fast that went), and very sorry if you missed it! I think I will be announcing a launching time before the next update and I hope to have them ready in two weeks. ]
On this blog I spent the last five years sharing the work of makers I admire. But this last year things have been a bit different for me as I fell madly in love with creating ceramics. I’ve been working on my own ceramic projects for quite some time now, even though I haven’t shared too much about it, up until today. I’m very proud, excited (and a wee bit nervous) to finally introduce.. The Pottery Parade!
