Zentangle inspired Pottery

  1. 1.
    the action of working with someone to produce or create something.

So I have been dying to share some of this with you. When you have a friend who is a very talented potter and you are looking for something cool to do, sometimes you get to collaborate on something awesome.

I have some work in progress pictures for you. The final pieces will be done sometime tomorrow so I'll probably be sharing them on Friday morning. 

But the other day my friend Sara (who is also the Captain of our Buffalo Etsy team) brought some beautiful pieces of handmade pottery from her studio Goldhawk Pottery and let me go wild.

Here are the results so far. 

It's so different than using pens, my hand is tired but it was so much fun! I had 7 pieces and then some little practice magnets too.

I wish I had taken a closer picture of this one.I used a stacked method of tangling on it and I like it a lot.

This was all one piece, I just wanted pictures of all of it.

 Simple... but fun and I love the way it turned out actually!

This piece of pottery is just gorgeous. So smooth, the lines were amazing, so we didn't want to add much to it. My favorite tangle around the rim seemed to be all it needed.

I wanted to try a few different techniques so everything is a little different. There's a learning curve, but how fun to try something brand new!

This is my favorite. I just love the way it turned out and the white almost looks like lace.

Oh, these were the practice pieces. 

So now they've been dipped in a turquoise glaze and they're back in the kiln for a 2nd firing and will be ready tomorrow.
I can't wait. I'm so excited!I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas!

I hope you are having a great week, making awesome art and having a wonderful time doing it. I can't believe summer is flying by so fast!


  1. Love the pottery - I'm excited to see how they turn out too!

  2. I am not ready to post today's things (probably will be posting several on Saturday) but I could not wait to gasp and "drool" over such lovely work!! They are absolutely stunning. When I taught art, many years ago, I got to "play" with a kiln and pottery, but it was just play. These are wonderful!
