  1. I've just come back from a few months hiatus, while I've worked on improving my techniques for making mini pottery. Put a few of them on Etsy, though I've got more I'll be adding by and by. Perusing the forums, I see that I should be using some other measure of scale than a dime, so with upcoming photos I'll change that scale prop. MesoWorks at Etsy. I'm also on Instagram, same name MesoWorks, but won't link in case it's not allowed. I have more stuff on there, just for show not necessarily sale.
  2. Hello! Extreme newbie here, and not exactly a member of the dollhouse community (yet?!). I have a question for you, however! If I should move this post elsewhere or anything like that please let me know. My passion is creating mini ceramics, often with somewhat intricate designs. I especially like Maya, Southwest American Indian, and geometric ornamental designs. My family insists that I should create pottery for the dollhouse community and I figured I'll give it a try. I'm going to start attending craft fairs and maybe selling on Etsy and would love to get your opinions on what styles of ceramics appeal to you. The issue I think I'm going to come across is making them small enough while still retaining the type of intricate designs I like. Right now, for instance, my plates average 2 inches across, far to big for dollhouse use. Right? Or are there some cases where this would be an okay size? Looking around other sites like Etsy it seems they max at 1 inch. I don't have a pottery wheel or kiln so I can't yet make the nifty jugs and such. Shaping them by hand is too difficult. Mine are made from air dry clay or polymer clay, depending on what I'm making. Would this make a difference to you, as long as the result is still pottery-esque? Styles! What styles are you personally interested in? Victorian floral? Chinese porcelain? Plain Raku ware-like? Other? Please give me your opinions, because I want to know what kinds of things would be the best to make! Forms! Which are most desired? Plates, bowls, other crockery? Would you want them individually or only in sets? Anything else you can think of to help me in this direction? I'll link to an image of my latest batch, quite an eclectic mix. Like I said, far too large for dollhouses so I'll have to miniaturize further. I'll also include a couple images that have been photographed more professionally, so you can get an idea of my style. Pottery Examples Moroccan Bowl Native American Style Vase Maya Vessel Thank you!
  3. Hello! I just joined up on advice from my family. I've been making miniature pottery/ceramic pieces from polymer clay and air dry clay for a while now, and have been considering making them even tinier so they can be used in dollhouses! I do like the idea of them being used, and not just shut up in a box somewhere (as they currently are). While my pieces are so far mostly plates or vase/jug forms, I hope to branch out to more conventional pieces as well. Crockery and such. My designs often center on Central American (Maya, Panamanian) and Southwest American Indian (Acoma, Hopi, Mimbres...) designs, as well as Greek and Moroccan, but I also do other abstract geometric designs and floral. Also birds. I know the former subjects aren't really conventional for dollhouse pottery, but I'll still make some. I'll include a few links to my pottery, as well as a somewhat informal picture of a batch that I just varnished. I know they're too large at this point for dollhouses, but I shall work on shrinking them. I just received good advice on making sure to thin them out as I scale down. If only I had a kiln! This would be so much easier with real clay. http://pipperd.com/images/PotteryExamples.jpg http://pipperd.com/images/Med_1.jpg http://pipperd.com/images/Morrocan_1.jpg (yes, I spelled Moroccan wrong when naming the image...) http://pipperd.com/images/NAmerican_1.jpg I also want to make miniature paintings. I've made a few but am unsure what subjects people would like. I know what I'd like, but I have strange tastes. Landscapes and Still-Lifes kind of bore me, I'll admit.
  4. From the album: Room Boxes, Etc.

    My son-in-law earned lifetime brownie points this weekend! While he and my DD were out and about last week, he came across a display of Jane Graber pottery and instantly knew that he HAD to get me one of these little masterpieces! When I unwrapped the paper I squealed in delight and did a little happy dance!! Each pieces is hand thrown and painted, signed and dated by Jane Graber. You can check her out at www.foundgoshen.com

    Each piece has been signed by Jane Graber.
  6. From the album: Lily Beach House

    Some of the new items: Brass inlaid trunk, brass key chain with working compass, some ceramic bowls and a pot. There's a plate of crab (magnet), plastic fish for possible mounting on a plaque and a dangling brass earring to be used as a light fitting.

  7. I recieved so many nice comments and requests for a tutorial on how to make the paper pottery and bowls that I've been posting online and selling in my Etsy shop. And I finally got around to it. I'm making the bowls right along with posting, so it's getting broken down into parts. You can find part 1 on my blog here; http://kyle-lefort.blogspot.com/2013/07/paper-pottery-bowl-tutorial-part-1.html The rest will pop up as I work on each step. I know a few members on here were interesed, so hopefully they see this thread.
