week of the GNOME = a temporary thing...

...and maybe a lot less than a week.  It is always, by the way, the week of the frog in MY studio....

here is the last of the batch of gnome mugs for a special order... just before firing.  I will show the whole ...pack?  Community?  FLOCK???? later....
I am GLAD that I do not have to do multiples of things too often, I get bored as sh!t so quickly.....


I have been working this week on some nouveau ART NOUVEAU imaginings....what does that mean to me?  All the way down is a wild antique vase  with swirls and greenery, organic shapes, greens, etc. I love that stuff from 100 + years ago.  Here are my recent explorations that way....

If you are into art nouveau you will like Stephanie Young's work. She was juried into the LNHC a couple of years ago. http://www.calmwaterdesigns.com/

The glaze is particularly appropriate for the Art Nouveau designs. Loving all those gnomes, but like you I think I would be bonkers after doing so many of the same thing.

Love that teapot! Can't wait to see the finished gnomes.

The gnomes look so cute in the kiln. Please show them to us when you take them out.
