Catching Up

Hi everyone, and Happy Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
I know it's been a while since I posted so I wanted to let you all know what I've been up to. I have been selling my ceramics on Etsy, so I've been working on getting more of what I've sold finished and added to the shop. I'm also working on a whole new stoneware set. I hope to be adding it within the next couple of weeks, so make sure you check back. I'll post again when I have it finished.
Anyway, have a great weekend!

Primitive Kitchen Canisters - NEW

Hi everyone! Today I thought I'd do a post about the new Primitive Kitchen Canisters I'm making, and show you some close up photos of these so you can see how awesome they look. 

This is the set of 3 Front View.

Inside the canisters.

These primitive ceramic canisters were made by me using a slip casting process. I've painted the designs in lead free ceramic paints and then glazed the inside with a solid Mocha. The outside has been glazed in a Mocha Crackle glaze. The lid handles are glazed in a glossy black glaze. Then they've been put back into the kiln and refired, which I also do myself. So you're getting these really cute handmade, primitive ceramic canisters that have been made by me from start to finish. Plus I also make other coordinating pieces to go with them. So there's a whole matching set for your kitchen! 
The set includes the following:
Primitive
Canisters
Utensil Holder
Grease Pot
Spoon Rest
Sponge Holder
Napkin Holder
Cream & Sugar Set
Soap Dispenser
Grease Pot/Compost Pot

One thing I've noticed about the photo is the Canisters, Sponge Holder, Spoon Rest, and Salt & Pepper Shakers look lighter in color then the rest of the items. 
That's not true. They are all the same color. It's the photo playing tricks on us!  Maybe it's the lighting causing problems? Anyhow the true color of everything is more like the Cream & Sugar Set. A true Mocha color.
Not shown in the photo that will go with this collection is a Butter Dish, Soap Dispenser & Napkin Holder. I'm working on these items right now. 

Now let's talk about your customization options that are available with this set.

1). Don't like the crackle glaze on the outside? No problem we can put a solid Mocha glaze on them instead.

2.) Don't like all the stars? No problem I can leave those off.

3). Don't like the sheep? No problem we can leave those off as well.

4). Don't like the twiggy vines, leaves, and pip berries? We can leave those off as well.

5). There are several wording options available with this set as well. 
Flour Sugar Coffee
Faith Family Friends
Live Laugh Love
Live Well, Laugh Often, Live Simply
Home Sweet Home

6). These are also available as a set of 4.

7). Have a customization of your own? No problem, feel free to email me or call me to discuss your ideas or wants.

By now you get the idea as to what customization we offer.

Right now these are MADE TO ORDER. If you want a set it usually takes me a couple of weeks to get them done if I don't have any other orders. You can find these at my Etsy store here.


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a relaxing weekend!
 I spent the weekend pouring & cleaning ceramics, which I love doing.
This week I will be finishing a canister set for a customer that will be done in ceramic paints & glazes. I will also try and finish a couple of pieces that are painted in ceramic paints & glazes, for my primitive set I'm putting together. 
I'm hoping to fire this Saturday.

I've decided to list all of the items I'm going to be making, on my Etsy store and not here on my blog.  It will make transactions smoother for my customers, and it will make it easier for me as well. 
With that being said here are the ceramic items available in my Etsy store.

Etsy Store To Open This Weekend! 5/21/2016!

Hi everyone! As you know I've been working really hard to get my Etsy store up and running, and to also get some things painted in time for the opening. I will be opening my Etsy store tomorrow around 11am PST. You won't find any items in the store until tomorrow. Here's the link to it https://www.etsy.com/shop/adorablecc   
I wasn't able to get a complete set of items done in ceramic paints and glazes before the opening. I still have a couple more pieces to finish before I add them to the store. I will post again here when I have them done.

Thank you to all my past customers for your support over the years. 
It really means a lot to me!
Thank you to all of you who have emailed me or sent me messages asking me to make my ceramics again. I really appreciate all of you for being so patient, and for wanting me to start back up again. I feel honored and blessed that so many of you love having my hand painted items in your home! THANK YOU!

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by today!

I will keep you posted here and will post a direct link to it as soon as I have it open. Thank you all so much for being so patient with me! 
On another note. I found out my email program hasn't been working correctly. Some of you haven't received the emails I've sent out to you. If you send me an email and you don't hear from me within a couple days, please call me. I would never not answer your emails. My customers are my number one priority! 
I believe it is working now though.

I have been working hard at getting sets made. I finally have 3 sets made, and have begun to paint them. I need several painted pieces to be able to fire the kiln, or it's a waste of electricity. As soon as I have fired the first load I will be posting here to let you know when they will be available in advance.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I do accept custom orders. If you'd like a custom order made, please feel free to send me an email or give me a call and we can discuss your needs. 

ETSY: I've also decided to go ahead and sell my items on Etsy as well as my blog. My store isn't up yet as I'm working on that in the evening. But, you will be able to find me there through my blog or by typing in adorablecc in the search bar.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. 
Thank you for stopping by today!

Primitive Ceramic Salt & Pepper Shaker

Hi everyone! Since I posted last I've been really busy in my studio making the Primitive Kitchen Canisters, and more! It's quit the process from start to finish, (which I already knew), but is so worth it in the long run. 

If you know me at all, or have been following me for a while, you know that my favorite paints are acrylics. But, since I started making ceramics several years ago, I've really wanted to paint them using ceramic paints & glazes because when I paint them with the acrylics it takes too long and there are so many steps to take.  I really want to cut down on the time it takes to make them. 

So I made a Salt Shaker painted in ceramic paints and glazes and wanted to show you some photos of what they look like painted in both types of paints, acrylic & ceramic paints and glazes. 

These were painted in acrylic paints on the outside and then stained. Then sealed with a matte sealer. 
They have clear ceramic glaze on the inside so their food safe.

   
This one was painted with the ceramic paints, and a mocha crackle glaze on the outside. (You can't see the mocha crackle glaze to well in the photo, so I posted a close up photo below.) The inside has clear ceramic glaze so they're food safe.

 Here I'm showing you a close up photo so that you can see the crackle glaze. 


This close up shows what the tops look like. The photo shows them being lighter than they actually are. I'd say they are actually a shade darker than the photo, and the crackle can be well seen from a distance. 


I will be shading around the tops and bottoms with another layer because I don't like how this one looks for as far as shading goes. 
So what do you think? Do you like these? Do you have any suggestions, or opinions?
 I'd love to hear your feedback!
If you don't feel comfortable commenting here, please feel free to send me an email to jodystacy@hotmail.com

I plan on making a complete kitchen set in this primitive design which will include the following functional kitchen pieces:
Primitive Kitchen Canisters  (Set of 3 or 4)
Primitive Salt & Pepper Shaker Set
Primitive Spoon Rest
Primitive Utensil Holder
Primitive Soap Dispenser
Primitive Sponge Holder
Primitive Grease Pot
Primitive Butter Churn
Primitive Butter Dish
Primitive Cream & Sugar Dish Set
Primitive Wax Warmer (Maybe)

I will start painting Canisters and such starting 4/25/2016. If you don't like them painted in the ceramic paints and glazes let me know and I'd be happy to paint them in acrylics for you. The price of those will be a little higher than the one's done in ceramic paints and glazes, but I'm happy to do them for you. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
~Jody~
