Less is ...

... a bit too cautious, perhaps? My first attempt at transfers, and I was wary of filling the entire surface. I've ditched that concern since then.

Wonderful! And just enough, I think. Coincidentally, I've just spent a couple of weekends painting and drawing (I've discovered a special pencil) on bisque ware - I'm beginning to think transfers are an *infinitely* more civilised and hassle-free way to decorate ceramics.

Less is always a good place to start...I can't wait to see how they turn out when you throw caution to the wind.

Beautiful, and I like the shape of the tea cup too. But I'd also love to see the 'maxi'milism side of you too : ) sure those designs would be equally great.

Samantha said...

they're so perfect.

I've been dying to learn how to do transfers. Just to make samples. Can you talk about how you do it? Or just tell me if you don't want to post all about it here??? Thanks so much. I love what you are doing.

I LOVE IT!!! I think it is beautiful. I also do not think it is too scarce or sparse...I love the breathing space in the design. Well done! I cannot wait to see more...
