Current ceramics crush: lions, llamas, catmaids and many more magical figurines by Bird Can Fox. Sculpted by hand, embellished with playful patterns and splattered with golden details. So lovely!
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!
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!)
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.
