Recent Ceramic Projects!

Hand built mug #craftychica #handbuiltmugs #ceramicsideas

My studio is ALWAYS poppin’ with ceramic projects. I’m either painting bisque or building bowls and mugs from scratch. Here are a few pieces I’ve finished recently.

The mug above is handbuilt. I’m not a pro, therefore I keep practicing. I also wanted to try out the 14K gold lustre. LOVE. For this mug, I pressed lace into the clay, and then used a Crafty Chica cling stamp on another piece of clay and attached it to the front of the mug.

It came out pretty cool!

Painted ceramic ring dishes!! #craftychica #pyop #ringdishes

I’m demoing at the CCSA convention (Contemporary Ceramics Studio Association) and am showing how to use dimensional glaze to decorate the little dishes by Bisque Imports! I love how they turned out!

Concha mug #craftychica #conchas

Did you know I make concha mugs? I use a bisque mug that is in the shape of a donut, then I cut and stamp clay to look like our favorite hot pink Mexican pastry. In this case, I painted it like the Mexican flag! Then through a series of trial and error, I found an easy way to fuse the two pieces together. It’s a little tricky, but I did it!

Cactus vases

This is for an upcoming workshop at Mucho Mas, we’re going to paint these cute cactus vases! I made one traditional green, and the other serape-inspired!

And of course mugs! I tried out some green glittered underglazes…ready to experiment even more!

Here are some videos of my other ceramic projects!


Love & light,
