California Wildflowers potbelly mug in teal

I tried out this color combo at the suggestion of a customer and I think this is a keeper! I wasn't sure if it was going to work because there's not teal in the design of the flowers, but it did!

The only thing I don't like about this color is that your eyes are drawn to it more than the flower work. It overtakes it slightly.

I've had people say the same about the red. In person, the color doesn't hit your eye quite as much although the color in the photo is true.

Either way its a nice pot. 

 

You didn't offend me. :) I make several different colors because everybody has different tastes. I like them all (but I did not like the white).

I don't like white with speckled clay body personally. I feel the same way. I also like my whites to be thick and fat looking if that makes sense? lol.

I don't like thin watery looking whites. So yes, I think I see what you mean! 

 

I am thinking of trying a creamy white or a satin white instead of this white gloss. 

 

I think I don't like the white with speckles either. I like other colors with the speckles. Love lime green, peach, aqua with the speckles. If it's going to be white I want really white. Oh well, I only made three mugs in white and two have sold so at least I don't have to keep them ! ;)

I am sure they will sell, no one is buying the mug for the top color. They are just picking ones that match what they like I assume. The mug is getting bought for the beautiful carving I imagine? I think a cream wouldn't work. It will be too earthy, the bright colors really make the whole thing pop.  I think just abandon the white all together the bright colors make you happy, and happy people buy pots?!? lol.. But if they are selling over the others, keep the white! haha. I think that purple you have on the inside of some of your cups would look brilliant, but maybe you already tried it and didn't like it?

The bright color does make me happy so I think you're right, I should stick with it! This made me laugh. Love it. 

 

I have tried the purple, in fact it's one of the most popular colors with this design. It looks wonderful if I do say so myself. The purple, sky blue and peach are the best sellers definitely but I have a feeling the teal will do well and the red sells well too. In fact the peach is in high demand. I personally was going to nix the peach because it's lower contrast with the clay but I currently have six mugs requested in peach!

Dunno how I missed that. Looking good. Are you still selling your stamps and rolling designs on etsy as well? 

I have mostly just let the stamps sell out. I have only a couple hours of time in the studio each day and I don't want to spend it making stamps. :/
