The place did the strategy of stencils come from for you?
I really like surface area design. I appreciate styles and I wanted to somehow include that into my get the job done. I was bored with the glazing procedure and desired to elevate the glimpse of my pots not from the glazing method but from the floor structure standpoint.
So you started off with styles, was it important for you to make them repeatable?
Not automatically. I consider the most critical factor for me was the sample experienced to converse to me in some way. Some designs I adore on the lookout at them and it is just about a visceral reaction where by I see and pattern and it is possibly a sure or a no in my head.
In which did you start out considering how Cricut may possibly be the resolution for generating these designs?
I realized I experienced formulated a way of introducing my types with the stencil and I did not want to be just likely to the retailer and obtaining a stencil that a million other persons had and were working with for various various items. I desired it to be special and truly the only way to do that was to start creating them. I employed Photoshop, I utilized Illustrator, and the Cricut appeared to be the only answer I had and which is exactly where I commenced.
Where by were you hunting for solutions? Did you google pattern maker?
I was common with the Cricut but at ACC they had a maker’s area and they had this huge laser equipment that we could use, you know, who could have a single of individuals in their home? I indicate just to have the place is just one issue but to be ready to find the money for it is a entire nother detail. So I investigated the Cricut. I researched the diverse products it could reduce and figured that it was the ideal selection for me.
By demo and mistake you created up your own process. How a lot of trials would you say you went by way of just before you commenced to say, Ahh, this is it! ?
Trials with the ceramics section, or trials with the Cricut?
Yes. The stencil component.
The Cricut part…hundreds. Hundreds, if not 1000’s. And it is an everyday finding out system for me.
Are you nonetheless studying?
Which is your most loved sort to make?
My beloved type that I make is the a single I am at present producing.
Do you experience that is a bit of a cop out?
Okay, if I could toss one sort in excess of and over and around it would in all probability be a bowl. Most people demands a bowl.
