My first hybrid layered piece. I love the potential here and for no reason I decided to go with yellow exterior for a first time. I’m convinced there is more to explore here.

I should learn to photograph my work better before I send it off to a new home☺️ This custom wedding set took the best out of me and I couldn’t be more proud of myself! I struggle with appreciating my work and often beat myself up too hard and find reasons to dislike it. I have the constant feeling that there is always room for improvement! It’s the constant question in your head “What if I... Wouldn’t have been better if... @hammerlyceramics post from yesterday got me thinking and I feel like we all should learn to love ourselves and what we do, to keep us motivated exploring more and diving deeper.

I started texturing this tumbler intending to make another Lava piece, not realizing that the color scheme was wrong. I finished it anyway and I know there is so mich more potential here just by switching the colors. Someone had mentioned tornado cups🌪 What do you think?

Here is a little snippet of my intricate carving to get you through your busy Monday! 😃 This Starry night inspired color combo has been one of our favorites @forestceramicco and I will be carving few teacups in this style. We are excited to introduce two smaller column vases and I’m excited to get my hands on the new molds, once they are fully dry. #valerianceramics #mugshotmonday #asmr #oddlysatisfyingvideo #processvideo #ceramicdesign #coloredporcelain #slipcasting #handcarved #handmade #design #porcelain #functional

I’m so happy how this piece turned out of the kiln! I’ve only made one of these in the past and I can see how much my carving has changed in the last two years. Excited to complete my lava and glacier collection for the next website update @forestceramicco. There will be few carved pieces in addition to this one.

Fresh out of the kiln and I’m so happy how the green piece turned out! 21 layers! I also carved a tumbler with the same colors and style. Little things like these two put the biggest smile on my face when all the steps of the process go smoothly and the kiln gods hear your prayers 😃❤️ What are your thoughts on this new little gem?

This Lava bud vase was the first and only piece finished yesterday. I will be cutting the screen time down today and getting some work done! We are so grateful for all of you who joined my partner and I @forestceramicco and on here. We are excited to share whats coming up next. I know I will be texturing lavas and glaciers for the next few days and get them all ready for the upcoming website update later this month. Can’t wait to see how the rest of the pieces are going to turn out! Thank you all for following along ! I will share more work as I finish it in stories and posts.

I wish my lava and glacier texturing process was nearly as satisfying as my carving. 😃It’s been close to 3 years since I discovered this technique. It all started as a black and white layered piece that we had forgotten uncovered. It was too dry to be carved at this point so instead of throwing it into the reclaim bucket I insisted on trying something on it so it doesn’t go completely to waste. I have no idea why the wire brush was in the casting table at this moment but the universe couldn’t have placed a better object in front of me. It worked! I my first thought was mushrooms texture but then we thought of adding blues in the color scheme and that’s how the glacier was born. So today I shave my beard and put a mask on to make some more of these gems! Not today silica !😃❤️

It’s time to put the mask on and brush like a crazy person. In the next four days I will working on all layered glacier and lava pieces. I might have gone a little too adventurous and layered way too many pieces but I have decided that I won’t be doing it again until December. May be. Excited to brush my first lava large serving bowl and make a 10” column vase in each design. I’m looking at 20-25 pieces total of all firings go smooth and cracking gives me a break for once! I will make sure to share some process! 🌋 🌋🌋
