Inspiring Artist : Meire Bari

My fascination with Cold porcelain started in earnest after seeing the creations of Meire Bari. While I was checking out Cold porcelain, I had seen a tutorial by Meire Bari on Youtube, for making Cold Porcelain. But it was not just her creativity that blew me away, but also her style of giving that 'country art' feel to the colors of her creations too...

Her work is often featured in the Biscuit magazine. She has a website with a shop that sells a lot of cold porcelain starter kits, tools, molds and tutorials. 

This is one of my favorites  from her creations.. the distressed background, the shabby and worn clothes on the scare crow, every careful detail and the matt finishing is just perfect... This is her facebook page .. Check out her latest work and let me know if you agree with me ...

Posting seems to be at a stand-still now because after coming back from a long vacation, getting back to routine is taking time.. on top of everything is this awful heat which make one so sluggish and out of energy !

To cap it all, my daughter got fever and was down for 5 whole days...Meanwhile , on 16th June, we completed 13 years of marriage! It's the start of year number 14... !

That's us within a week of our wedding. ! I'd say that it does seem like yesterday, and ups and downs, and everything that has happened, I am thankful we were meant to be... Bring on the next few decades and beyond too... :D

Wire - linked Bracelet In Green Hues ..

This was a re-design . A previously designed bracelet, on tiger tail was changed to a wire linked one . I made the clasp also with wire.

Linked apple green crystals with monalisa beads in double green shades and also added german Silver findings , studded with stones.

Perfect for a dainty wrist.

A Great Vacation.... And Back To Work..

More than 6 weeks of not blogging !! It was hectic , trying to work out things and close down for a month's vacation... and then coming back, it is even more of a struggle, getting back the rhythm... I was back on conducting my art classes by the next day, but with my daughter still not back at school, the rest of my work keeps lagging...

The vacation was just what was needed, though...a lot of lazy time spent with family , a lovely trip to a nice backwater resort , loads of home cooking, and eating out. Bonding with my sis- in- law and brother... 

Nearly 13 years of marriage, and finally got time to show my favorite ancient Palace Museum, to my husband, just a few minutes from our home... 

Cameras were no allowed in the Museum, so no luck there... But some lovely shots of the floating cottages at the backwater resorts , and the lovely sunrise I captured .. I hope you enjoy them..

The entrance to the floating cottages and  beautiful landscaping inside the resort.

The floating cottages - view from a houseboat ride on the backwaters

A beautiful sunrise clicked from the deck of our floating cottage... the Chinese fishing nets standing like sentries .
