spring!

Happy Spring! and it truly is a beautiful spring has sprung day here in south eastern PA. ahhh! As the grass comes back to life and the trees begin to bud, it feels like the right time of year to be launching a new line of work. The site is shaping up nicely, and will be ready early next week, I would tell you the exact day I wrote on my calendar but I don't want to tease you in case something happens. So while we are all anxiously awaiting the brilliant new collection of little flower wares, I thought I'd share my little side project.

Pictured is one of my new ceramic drawings. An illustrated bird tag! The inspiration for these lovelies (and there are more) is to keep things fresh. Since water colors don't always translate well, I started to sketch on my clay slab scraps, which not only keeps me from having to re-wedge my scraps, it gives me an informal surface to doodle on. And the part that I love the most is using the glazes as if they are water colors, nice and washy.

Happy beautiful first day of spring!
