Add Bright Color With “Big Nap” Decorative Dishes

Jelly Bean’s roundness is a little exaggerated but it really was a big nap. Another one of the feline shapes I love. “Big Nap” decorative dishes are based on one of my brush pen sketches, each one handmade, hand painted and unique, reflecting my influences from Japanese brush pen art, Theophile Steinlen, and Andy Warhol.

Marketplace: Warm it Up With Summery Oranges ~ The Creative Cat

I’m in the middle of several new designs and ideas right now, finding magnets the right size, experimenting with making cutting templates for polymer clay, working out the tote bags with different styles of handles, and a new painting, so I don’t have anything new to share this week, even though there will be a […]

“Bath” Decorative Dishes in Peach and Violet

When I made the “Trees of the Trail” coasters I really liked how the white washes turned out, both catching in the grooves impressed from each leaf and also lightly coating the surface, giving them a patina that added to the dimension. I’d wanted to impress a stamp again but this time without ink, using […]

New Decorative Dish and Coaster Designs

Some variations on a theme, 6″ plates and 4″ coasters with the image stamped into the surface then painted and glazed in various ways, using “Bath” and “Three Cats Looking”. This is going to develop into something interesting! Starting with the idea of the original “Three Cats Looking” trinket dishes and coasters I’d wanted to […]

Details of My Display

Since this is pretty much what I’ve been doing for the past week I thought I’d share some more photos of my shop display. I’ve really been enjoying how some of the setups worked themselves out. I would love to have a shop but there is no way I could swing that but I love […]

Holiday Open House and Studio Sale

Finally, the open house I’d been planning to host as early as October came to be, after getting all the work done that paid for the materials for the new items I made. And those items turned out so well and were very popular that it was worth both the wait and the effort. Holiday […]

Hot Off the Worktable: Trees of the Trail Coasters

“Trees of the Trail” coasters, terra cotta polymer clay with the imprint of a real leaf that’s from one of the trees growing on the trail—in fact, the sycamore leaf is from the sycamore tree I sketched in “Sycamore Moon” and the maple leaf is from the tree that holds “The Rope Swing“. I roll […]

Favorite Photos for Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail

It was really the art that inspired me to have an exhibit of Panhandle Trail images during Rock the Quarry, but I have far more photos than paintings. I’ve used them as the basis for paintings, I’ve used them for graphic designs and websites totally unrelated to Panhandle, and I sell prints of them too. […]

Getting Ready for Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail

I’ve been enjoying my trip around the seasons while getting ready for my fifth annual Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail exhibit. I can hardly believe it’s next weekend already! I’m framing new artwork and making sure the older pieces are clean and neat, making prints of art and photos and packaging or framing them, plus […]

Open House and a New Shop Display

I had a little open house this past weekend, and established my living room/office as a little shop for local people to visit any time I’m here. It’s an event, and a change, I’ve been trying to find the time to set up and I’m happy to have it now. Christmas in July! Studio Sale […]
