This week my assignment in the Lilla Rogers class was to design ceramic plates that incorporated succulent plants.
I was going for an 'anthropologie' 'ethnic' inspired type of design because I'm really attracted to tiles and world patterns that are trending lately.
It's not as successful as I was hoping it would be. I painted watercolor and ink and really like a lot of the elements I made, but I had a hard time trying make them work. The assignment was due on Sunday at 5pm, and at 4:30 I was still messing around with elements and color-- so at the last minute (litterally 5:02) I posted this on the flickr site. If I had more time I might have tried for an all indigo look, and played around with adding linework and less watercolor maybe.
Moving on. This week is CHILDREN'S BOOKS!
