When we cast layers of colored porcelain to make our carved pieces, we end up up with a lot of colorful scraps. here is what we do with them. enjoy this tutorial and let us know your favorite part of the process. and do you see any weird creatures in the marbling? 😁❤️

We’ve completed few doubled walled pieces for our upcoming website update on monday, may 27 at 2 pm pst. i’ve designed my prototypes to fit perfectly, allowing airspace in between the exterior and interior piece. preview of all available work will be sent with our monthly newsletter the day before the sale and giveaway winners will be picked from our subscribers list. we are so excited to show you all what we’ve been up to! thank you all for your continuous love and support! ❤️🙏

So excited to finally have a small batch of glaciers and lavas. @valeri_aleksandrov made few new shapes this time and three pieces didn’t make it through the texturing process. it’s is extremely hard to brush through layers of colored porcelain and not c***k the piece. and we never know what to expect until we open up the kiln. we have 14 pieces total including two large columns vases in each style, one lava budvase, a glacier planter and 10 cups. we are working h*****n finishing one last batch of marbled and carved work to fire before we are ready to send our newsletter to all our email subscribers. make sure you are on the list to receive a preview the day before the sale. thank you all filling along! we appreciate your love and support. ❤️🙏 🌋 🔥 .

🌈💧🌈 today the rain is back on orcas island, but this rainbow drip rainbow set brightened my day, fresh out of the kiln! it’s been about a year since the last iteration of this set, there will hopefully be 2 full sets this year, and definitely some sold as singles. some of the colors are more prone to warping, and we’ve ended with a number of seconds from this endevour! hoping for 2 sets of 8 that have no issues... a labor of love, as always, and a photobombing puppy, as always!!! 😂 #🌈💧 #rainbowdrips #forestceramic #coloredporcelain #rainbowset #cupset #limitedseries #orcasisland #handmadeceramics

My problem with planters is i always end up using them for my own plants! 😯 i am trying to get planters back into the production rotation, spring is time for them! i hope to have at least a few for the next website update at the end of the month. which colors or designs would you want for a planter? @valeri_aleksandrov might even be making a glacier one... ❄️❄️ #forestceramic #handmade #planter #ceramicplanter #coloredporcelain #spring #mayflowers #orcasisland #rainbows #vase #ceramics #smallbusinessowner

I couldn’t be happier with how these two turned out! i can’t decide if i like the white exterior more then the black. do you think they should be offered as a set or release them individually? we are getting close to our next update and will make sure to follow up with exact date soon! i will be sending our newsletter the day before the sale with a preview of all available work. stay tuned and thank you for following along!❤️🙏

Marblacadabra 🧙‍♂️🧚‍♂️🎩 here is a little snippet of my process demolding all three of my bowl shapes. i get a lot of questions about glazing. i mix mason stains and @uspigment to my porcelain slip to achieve my marbled and layered pieces. i only use clear glaze for the interior of my work. the color is in the porcelain and that’s what creates the colorful look. it’s a labor of love and each piece comes out with unique pattern. in the last 8 years i be been developing my marbling techniques and the possibilities here are unlimited! thank you all of you who joined our page in the last 48 hours! we are so happy to share our ceramic shenanigans with you all!
