A mug I painted at Ready, Paint, Fire! In Keystone with my family. The paint was a little hard to work with because it soaked into the ceramic really quickly and didn’t spread easily. But I think it still turned out nice. The mug is huge, too, which I love. #ceramics#plumblossoms
Which is your favourite flower? Plum or Sakura blossoms? 🌸🙋♀️ Plum (ume) usually bloom first, while it’s still winter ❄️ They actually used to be the preferred flower in Japan until sakura took over in popularity a few hundred years ago!
Yet another awesome thrift store find: a well-loved 200ml Tokoname kyusu for pennies on the dollar. It’s solid and handmade. Whoever owned it last took good care of it: the exterior is pristine. It was also well-loved: there was considerable buildup stuck behind the filter screen. I popped it out and gave it a good boil followed by a baking soda scrub.
