For several months Sandra from Azulado and I have been talking about working together on a collection. I love her sea inspired pottery like this beautiful barnacle bowl and the spoon dish below in shape of a fish. She also makes ceramic jewelry, you can find them in her shop.
Mean while last week her first package arrived with supplies to use in our jewelry.
I gave an idea of what I wanted and Sandra made some yummy cabochons, the starfishes are funny enough her idea, I had not thought of a star :)
And here are my first two pieces with Sandra's work incorporated in them.
I love the direction these ceramic pieces are taking me, especially during these cold days these sea treasures warm me up :)
Sandra makes all of the ceramic pieces in her studio in Portugal, all pieces are made by hand, fired at 2012.0 Fahrenheit (1100 degrees Celsius) glazed and then fired again for strength.
More pieces are in the making, so stay tuned!
