Some new things in the shop
 
Some of you may have noticed that it has been a little quiet at the shop front lately. These last few weeks I've been busy with a lot of custom orders, as well as with some technical struggles, some things non-shop-related and okay, sometimes I've also been pretty lazy. But... that's gonna change! Today I've added some fresh folklore & fun plates to the shop and I'm planning some more updates real soon, so if you're waiting to finally see some new teapots or pitchers in the shop, stay tuned!
 
 
 
 
By the way the first new teapot is a bit of a sad story. Lately I've been experiencing a lot of technical difficulties with my ceramic decals, so I've already had to throw away a lot of stuff that didn't look well after firing.  So when this teapot finally turned out okay after a lot of failures, I was pretty happy and relieved. But then: as soon as I put some water in it, it started leaking! Turned out that though all the screenprinting was fine, the teapot itself had a large crack in it's bottom... Bye bye fine teapot!

Very nice! I love how the style of the plates merges so seamlessly with your own. I was doubting there for a second whether you did the folk drawings or whether they were vintage.

I would so not throw out that gorgeous teapot!!!  Please please tell me you or someone else will use it as a gorgeous flowerpot instead!  I love it!!  If you throw it out I might cry, Nina!  Happy weekend!

Firstly, I just want to say how beautiful your ceramics are. You have such an eye for colour and composition! So inspiring.
 
I also wanted to ask you a questions, but couldn't email you, as I don't have Outlook. I was wondering if you make your own ceramics and them paint them or do you use existing ceramics?
Also, how do you get such bright colours. The glazes I uses are all very muddy and would love to work with brighter colours.
 
Thanks so much

@ Aidan: currently I mainly work with existing (vintage) ceramics, but sometimes I also make my own. The bright colors are not glazes but (I'm not sure if you call them like that in English) 'top glazes', you put them on top of an already glazed surface. They're available in pretty bright colors in the specialized ceramics shops.

About Ninainvorm

I'm Nina, ceramics designer, art/ craft/ design lover and mom of Rosa and Julie. This blog is about the things I make (you can find my online shop here) and the things I love (design, art, craft, interior, fashion, photography). You may have noticed a special emphasis on my two beautiful girls and everything children's design related!

There used to be a second blog on children's clothing, Coolkidsclothes, but it's currently sort of asleep and all the images have vanished temporarily, but I hope to revitalize it real soon.

Meanwhile, lovely children's clothing will be an important part of this blog here as well.

Want to get in touch? You can always send me an email through ik_ben_nina@hotmail.com.
