Hi all!

Craftster has taught me: try new crafts, use those supplies you've been too scared to use, challenges are a great motivator and if you like something, make your own.

Hence: The Kandinsky Teacup!



A few years ago, at my local art gallery, I saw a teacup that had been designed by the artist Wassily Kandinsky and fell totally in love with it. A year or so later, I found a set of ceramic paints on sale at a craft store, wanted to give them a try, and remembered the Kandinsky teacup. Time moved on, I found the perfect teacup at the dollar store. Then, all of these things sat in my craft room until I saw this challenge and started to think about what craftster does mean to me, and I thought again of the Kandinsky teacup.







So this is my first attempt at ceramic painting, but I'm really happy with the result and feel I've really paid homage to the original,

That came out great! I often do the same thing...gathering supplies with a project in mind, that may take years to actually happen!
