From My Sketchbook

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Every once in a while, I sketch some new designs in my sketchbook.

I really should do it more often, because it relaxes me.

All I seem to sketch lately are bottles, I’m not sure why?

Plain bottles, in different colors and textured bottles

I’m not sure about this one, what do you think?

I must create withtext

While I wait for my new workshop to come to life, I’ll just keep sketching new designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Zig Zag

I’m participating in the…Blogging From A to Z April (2015) Challenge

And this is the last post!

For at least a week, maybe more…I had absolutely no idea what to blog about, that started with the letter Z…just like my X marks the spot post.

So, I grabbed my sketchbook and started sketching. This is the first one I sketched. I’m not sure if I like these? I’ve decided, that I’m not really a fan of zig zag stripes…it’s kind of busy!

Second sketch

 I’m not sure if I like these either, but I do like the top of the bottles!

Last one…

I’m not sure if you can call this zig zag…but I really like these!

I’m definitely making these!

What do you think?

X marks the spot!

I’m participating in the…Blogging From A to Z April (2015) Challenge 

For at least a week, maybe more…I had absolutely no idea what to blog about, that started with the letter X. I don’t have any items that start with an X, I don’t even know of any pottery terms that start with an X. Maybe there is, and I just can’t think of it right now…I don’t know? Planning a blog post about the letter X…was difficult for me. But, then one day I had an idea!

“I’ll just sketch something!” It started out as a joke really. Sketch a bottle, and put an X on it and call it…X marks the spot. Then I’d have my X blog post.

Easy Peasy!

But, then something happened when I opened my sketchbook, and started to sketch. My hand, and my pencil had a mind of its own, and these bottles are the result! I have to say…that I like these so much, I want to make them!

What do you think?

Those bottles inspired me so much, a few days later I sketched these.

I love these…I’m making these too!

And then last night, I sketched some mugs.

I think I’ll make a whole line of dinnerware with this design. What do you think?

Thanks…Blogging From A to Z, without you…these designs would not exist!

Now…What should I call them?
