belated..happy new year.

wow. I realized that it has been a long time since I posted here on the blog. Certainly a by-product of being busy and also the natural gravitation towards other forms of communication on social media that are so efficient, like Instagram. Instagram is just fun and so manageable and I love scrolling through and seeing the images people post. It's such a lovely way to take a small break in the day and enter into someone else's mind, work, world and I have to admit, I have been favoring that quickness.
That said, I still also enjoy reading people's blogs and getting a bit more in depth idea of what they are up to.
2014 was a busy year and I was happy to delve deeper into my work and continue being inspired by so many things that influenced my designs.
Here are some of the new things that emerged:

madras-having fun with textures and patterns based on classic textiles and mixing these with other pieces

chinoiserie in other color ways- playing around with new combinations that presents the chinoiserie in surprising ways-look out for more this year

all black all white for more subtle interpretation of imbedded objects-

This year will hopefully bring a thorough clean out of the studio-more work in raku, an installation project and some good travel plans on the horizon-always key for new inspiration and continued exploration into telling stories on clay..

and of course beach time with porter watching birds congregate and collecting detritus, hanging with kiki and looking out for hawks and the parrots swooping into the backyard..

happiest of new years.. and if you too are an instagram fan- you can keep regular tabs on my work  @lisaneimethceramics and also on Facebook..
