The last of my succulent mugs are gone, I'll be working on making more over the next few days. I hope everyone's enjoying their holidays, breaks, tidying up, prepping for the new year, or whatever it is you're each doing. #succulentlove#holidaycheer#modernmud

Reposting my original post for these succulent mugs 🌱🌸🦎🌸🌵🌸🌿🌸 One of the big differences between drawing and ceramics is definitely how long the process takes! Like, I already worked so long on this piece, and then it has to dry (slowly!) and then go in the kiln (for days!) and then I will glaze it (for hours) and fire it (...) and if I add gold, it will get a third firing. The process takes weeks. Drawing out the sketch for this piece took a few minutes. 😬 Of course, we can spend hours and weeks on drawings too, I guess the difference is that here, in order for this piece to be appreciated, I can't just leave it as a "sketch" or an unfired piece of clay. You couldn't drink coffee out of that and then really whats the point??😜 I think the lesson in all forms if art is that patience pays. And now... time to relax. #weekend#succulentmug#modernmud
✨ Here's a better view of my #succulentmug 🌵🌱🌿 I made two of these in somewhat different styles. The other was sent off to its new owner before the summer, and I just posted this one on my @etsy shop. Inspired by a beautiful cuff I saw, which I believe was designed by @passionflowersue 🌱Click the link in my bio to see more pics or to snag it for yourself. #succulentlover#modernmud
Soooo if you've been watching my stories this week, you know that I've been focusing a lot on adding new mug designs to the shop before we get crazy busy for the holiday season. And I have to say, the succulent themed ones are some of my favs because, well, I'm obsessed with succulents 😍🌵 Head over to our shop to see all the new goodies (link in bio) 🤗 Happy Friday friends! #sweetminthandmade
Every angle is important ✨👀
After an uncalled-for leak in my ceiling I only have 3 survivors left from the batch of succulent mugs I made this summer!🌵🌸All three are being held for customers, so if you are interested in purchasing one feel free to message me!☺️🌵 no filters as usual🍃
Love this shot from @mudandyarn of her @pitchpinepottery cactus mug in action! I'm working on my last batch of cactus mugs in this style for the year, they will be available this month. After that, I'm retiring this design for a while. Cycling through designs helps keep me focused and motivated. I never want to feel burnt out from making something too much, especially when the design is close to my heart. I'm working on another version at the moment but won't reveal it until I'm happy with it. The white crackle cactus mugs will likely be ready for the end of August update, then by custom order only until next year 🌵🌺Happy Friday!
Sold✨This is how my succulent mug came out. What do you think?? I have more ideas along this line and can't wait to experiment with them! This beaut's available in my shop, just click on the link in my profile. #succulentlove#succulentmug#modernmud
