Recent work...

Here´s a few photo of my recent projects - last week I launched these collectible landscape nuggets in my Etsy shop. Good news that these sell, bad news that I´m already addicted...

My favorite buff stoneware clay is ideal for this kind of work: doesn´t warp, shrinks very little and smooth enough to carve or etch fine details. Check out my low-tech texturing "tools"...glaze will melt nicely into gaps and tiny ponds.

Greenware nuggets look awful , but my bright glazes will turn these to tiny treasures ( I hope:)

I formed 52 pieces this week and you can check them out in my Etsy shop next Monday. I´ve managed to make something else also:

...small salt cellars or ring dishes and pinched bowls for sauce, spices or.. for building your very own moss garden!!! See those tiny hill cottages?

I said TINY and I (almost) never lie!:)I can´t wait to wear a pair of cottages in my ears!!!

  1. Such beautiful work. You must have fantastic eyesight (or very strong specs!). Your textural marks remind of the 'shorthand' used by Van Gogh.

  2. Hi Szilvia!!! I love your blog and I'm so excited to see your new work on Monday!!!! I'm wearing my necklace at work today and everyone is saying OOOH PRETTY!!! I let them know about your shop! I'm going to link your blog to my blog if that's okay.

  3. Jfidz! I love VanGoghs bright contrasting coloures and this is the first time that we are in the same sentence:)

    I´ve got eagle eyes...when I´m wearing my prescription glasses. Stady hand is more important making stuff in this scale.
