Sponges might be my new favorite
I got back into the studio last week; a little later than I planned, but I was pretty productive while back home for my winter break. I got a ton of positive feedback on my NOPE mugs, so I thought I'd do another small run of them before the semester starts.
To add some color I started sponging them with underglazes and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with the results! I'm obsessed! I got it to look all watercolor-y and textured and ugh, can't get enough. As much as I love it, it is a bit of a curveball. I'm really trying to develop my signature look and really thought the emoticups were going to be it. Granted, I've drawn narwhals, llamas, cats, flowers, and pugs on my pots before too. We'll see what happens.
For now, I am going to embrace this energy and try to merge some concepts I got floating around in my brain. Semester begins tomorrow!
