Here are photos of the various Celtic and Tribal blackwork projects I have painted at a local ceramics studio.
Sorry, none of these pieces are for sale, but feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a custom piece for yourself!
My Tribal Style|
I have several distinct styles of drawing/painting, but one |
of the earliest I developed was a stream of consciousness sort
of tribal blackwork. I tend to use black ink and fill up every
square inch of the page/project with elaborate details, florals,
spirals, spikes and subpatterns worked into the whole theme.
My husband calls it the doily pattern, but I only know I have
always doodled like this and always add spiral after spiral, in
a surreal tribal tattoo of ink.
I find this translates very well to ceramics and especially to
Mama's Good Gravy
with tiny flowers and black scrollwork interspersed
with detailed swirls and coils. It took approximately
12 hours to make and was a Christmas gift for my mom.
celtic braiding as a Christmas gift for my father.
After visiting months later and finding it still in
a pristine state I was informed it was too pretty to
use for ashes so I forced the issue with by emptying
a different ashtray into it. Dad was not amused.
It took approximately 4 hours to produce.
