The 2022 ceramic ornament collection is here! 🥳
Each one is a labor of love and I am so excited to share them with you!
I had ordered these ceramic bisque ornaments several months ago, thinking I would be *ahead* for the holidays for once, but I ended up starting on them much later for a few reasons: 1) I was afraid I'd mess them up since this is my first time painting on ceramic and 2) I wanted each design to be special and meaningful and while I had a list of 12, they weren't all feeling like the one.
With number 1, I knew I just had to bite the bullet and do it!
With number 2, it's a little bit harder because inspiration comes when it wants to come! I ended up delaying the holiday shop launch because a few days before, I got hit with a bunch of ideas! At the end of the day, waiting until they felt right and looked like how I imagined is (and always will be in my opinion!) worth the wait.
This collection is inspired by projects and sketchbook pages from the past 11 months that were meaningful to me.
I learned something important from each of these original pieces and every ornament holds an intention for its new home and owner.
Some designs are replicas of what I had created and others share the same technique or subject. You can read about the inspiration for each one in their listing description.
I wanted to take my time on them and painted them during all hours of the day. I also really wanted to concentrate and be in the moment during the painting process so I didn't record any process videos (I feel like that takes away from it because I have to stop and start a lot, arrange props, wait for good lighting, etc.) I did take videos of the finished product though so you can get a good look at them! (They are included in the listings.)
This was a really special and fun way for me to reflect and revisit the past year. I hope you enjoy these ornaments as much as I enjoyed making them!
