I have lots of ideas for new plates, this is the first batch finished and ready for my Etsy shop and paper scissors stone in Bristol. I am planning a couple of designs for weddings, births and other celebrations that can have your personal information added. These plates look really great hanging on the wall especially in a group. Mugs, tea cups and egg cups are also in the pipeline. Inspired by folk paintings and my dolls, it is interesting how working in different mediums informs your approach to each, I am always learning.
I’ve been working away at getting my first group of standing peg dolls finished, I’m really pleased with them, and am also working on some more ceramics to add to the mugs in my shop. So lots of variety, tea pots, cups and saucers, salt and pepper shakers, serving plates, small dishes and even a smart pair of dogs! Lots of new things listed in my shop and more to come over the following weeks. I’ve had a lovely relaxed Sunday, this post being my only concession to work so I’m off to eat now and relax a little more, happy sunday evening to you all.
I have painted some new ceramics this week getting ready for Paper Scissors Stone, a Bristol based shop that brilliantly showcases local talent. It’s Easter holidays so I am working in the evenings, cups and saucers and large serving plates so far. I’ve had to ask the children for a ten minute break to write this post and clear my head before I take nine 12-year-old girls to a laser fusion birthday party and then back home for an overnight!! just writing about it makes me want to lie down and breath into a paper bag!!! But it is a beautiful sunny day so all is well.
Coming to my shop soon, hand knitted cups or mugs!! there is also a little patchwork cup perched on the top. I wanted to bring a reference to my textile work onto the china and whilst looking through my many knitting books it occurred to me my love of all the different stitches would be a good starting point for these mugs. Slightly smaller than my picture mugs like the example below which shows one of my ‘Good Morning Handsome’ mugs.
