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:
A wile ago I stumbled upon a quirky pair of Yayoi Toesamas that made me giggle pretty hard. Then I discovered Virginia Wool, Frida Calus, Sole-Adore Dali and other wonderfully designed socks by the England based brand called ChattyFeet. Artists, scientists, divas and many more characters that will keep your feet warm and lift you up every time you put your eyes down. I’ve got my eye on the artist sock set!
We’re starting off the week with a healthy dose of color and pattern in these delightful illustrations by Studio Grand-Père. Gorgeous ladies, surrounded by countless botanicals and details in every shade imaginable. So lovely!
Using different collage techniques and colored pencils, Illustrator Aura creates colorful portraits and cozy fragments in which I wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon or two. I love how the shapes in her work revel different structures, and how all the playful details fit together so harmoniously. The lady on the sofa in the second image is my favorite!
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!
A bit of an image overload in today’s blogpost. But it’s been a while since I shared the work of Brazil based artist Brunna Mancuso and found so many gorgeous new pieces in her collection that I couldn’t help myself! I particularly love the girl in the fourth image, in which Brunna included a colorful embroidered pattern in her bandanna <3
Textile artist Mariana Baertl is the creator behind a brand called Living Fibers; a name couldn’t be more striking for the beautiful works she creates. Using fibers and yarns from around the world, Mariana carefully embroiders and weaves the textiles into gorgeous, vivid artworks that have amazing textures and color palettes. Love!
