Can porcelain get any more exciting?

Porcelain Earrings - Radiant Sunflower in Teal

Some of you may recall that I played around with some colored porcelain a few weeks ago. Well, I took some of the results out of the kiln and I think it is safe to say... I'm in love! I tried two different colors to start and just used different underglazes on them to see what kind of effects I could get. The pair above are made from teal porcelain and white underglaze.

Porcelain Earrings - Secret Garden in Lavender and Black

This is a lovely dark and broody pair made from lavender porcelain and black underglaze. I have always loved this design and seeing it in this color combination makes me love it even more.

Porcelain Earrings - Honeysuckle in Lavender

This pair was made with the same lavender clay but I used white underglaze instead. It's amazing how different the clay can look with such a simple change.

Porcelain Earrings - Lots O Dots in Teal and Purple

Here is another pair made with the teal clay and dark purple underglaze. Gorgeous! This color combination brings me right back to 1984 and the teal and purple striped shirt I had. I thought I was pretty hot in that shirt and was so terribly disappointed to show up on the first day of school to see another girl wearing the same one! The horror! Anyhoo... I will have to make more in this combination since this pair was snatched up already. :)

Porcelain Earrings - Spanish Fans in Antique Lavender

This is another one of my favorite designs. The Spanish Fans look great no matter what color combo I do but in the lavender clay with a hint of black underglaze... yum. :)

These earrings can be found in my shop. Now... what color shall I play with next?

I can't decide which one I love the most. Maybe the Spanish Fans - but they are all incredibly beautiful!

Color, texture, pattern, all tempered by a healthy dose of understatement. Those pieces are divine.
