I have lots of colorful pieces for you this week, starting with this fun batch of tile connectors. I've got bathroom renovation on my mind (it's kind of been on my mind for the past 15 years actually) and everything I make lately makes me think..."gee, maybe I should make tiles that look like this!"
I thought the same thing about these funky components. It would be pretty cool to make larger versions that fit together perfectly to use as a backsplash above the sink. Am I right? (Am I crazy?)
It's been a while since I dragged out my never ending supply of dark and groggy clay. Every time I do I remember why I don't like it. And every time I do I get on my blog to tell you all how much I don't like it. Sorry about that. I'm a creature of whiny habit... Anyhoo...despite my dislike for this clay I am usually pretty happy with the end results.
I went for an embossed look on these hearts and had some fun experimenting with glazing techniques.
I kept that look going on some round and oval pendant pieces...
I especially love how this matte copper green glaze looks on this clay and the way it highlights the embossing.
I played around a little with a new shape, which I like a lot. It's very tribal and ancient looking...I could see these pieces paired with natural stone and wood beads.
Lastly I have this small batch of textured rings. Always a useful shape and they are large enough to be a focal.
So thar she blows! The update will happen in my Big Cartel shop on Friday, July 29th (two days from this very day!) at noon EST. As always, you can watch the listings as they go up on my Facebook page, right here. Hope to see you on Friday! :)
