The past couple weeks have been so crazy with orders and Phoenix events! But it’s pushed me to create a lot of new items in my studio. Here are some of them! I’ll eventually have new versions of these in my Etsy store (which is now in vacation mode until I can catch my breath!), but for now I’ll have them at two upcoming Phoenix events!
I made some angels last year and they were such a hit, I painted more this year! These were the first to sell at our event at The Heard Museum last weekend. I think because everyone has so much election anxiety, angel statues help calm nerves, right? Who doesn’t need an angel? These all sold, but I’ll be making more – and even teaching a workshop on Dec 13 at Changing Hands in case you want to paint one yourself!
I used my silkscreens on a plate. I had made a whole bunch of designs a few years back and saved them, luckily those screens held up because look how cool this plate turned out?
And then I made a huge batch of Arizona ornaments. These sold quickly too. I made them super bright and cheery, with a bit of serape inspiration! I made ONE with the PHX letters, not sure if I can do more of those, I just happened to have some ceramic letters I made a while back and I used them on this piece.
MAGNETS! These are layered resin magnets and I had fun with these because I first layered glittered shapes, then added the regular glitter. It gave them such a cool, dimensional look when they were finished and cured! I used all my own illustrations as well as Patrick’s.
Tortilla warmers for the win! These are such a blast to paint. Each one has its own story. You simply place a towel inside and then your warm tortillas and it s keeps them hot and fresh!
I wrote this phrase inside this one because to me, there is no better feeling than to open a tortilla warmer and see a giant stack. They never run out because someone is always making more. Tortillas for everyone!
I went a little crazy with the dimensional paint on this one. These are all fired ceramic pieces, therefore they are food safe. I think you could get a blank tortilla warmer, a plastic one, and paint the outside of it. Hmmm. I think I smell a tutorial coming up!
These were a blast to make! I saw this technique on Pinterest and knew I had to try it. They look like embossed glass jars, right? I sold all of these, but had so much fun making them, I have a new batch coming up!
And here is a box Patrick made (and sold) called Eyes of Mexico.
Yesterday I visited the White House, more on that to come! Have a great day, everyone!
