Fall is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited. What’s better than pumpkins galore, leaves changing color, and the smell of all the seasonal goods?
Bring all that autumnal spirit into your home this Fall by creating a paint-you-own pottery centerpiece or display for your home! With all sizes of pumpkins and gourds, acorn boxes, leafy pottery, and a variety of color palettes to create, your display can be perfectly within theme and entirely unique to your home. Your studio is likely to have their own Fall display, so feel free to draw inspiration from any samples they may have out or color schemes they may have used.
Specialty paints are a great way to achieve the colors of the season; often earthier in tone and having more organic movement within the kiln, specialty glazes can make a gourd look truly natural, or give the perfect warm tone to a vase. These glazes show how they flow across a piece in the kiln, so
anything with fun curves and grooves will create a very interesting finish. While all studios may carry a variation of the specialty glazes that exist, your local studio is sure to have many options to elevate your piece.
Combining elements of pottery with other materials makes a very sophisticated display. Try putting dried flowers into a ceramic vase, real pumpkins next to the fake ones, a candle within a painted holder; all are sure to create an extra special touch!
