Personally, I’m not good at forming things out of clay, but I like looking at what other people can do! This entire week on Brown Paper Bag is dedicated to ceramics in their various forms: surface design, sculpted figures, and more. So, let’s get started with Bolden by Jen Collins.
I’ve long admired Jen Collin’s illustrations, so when she started making ceramics I was really excited. There’s something incredible about how drawings translate into 3D objects, and her line, Bolden, is no exception. I can imagine these things as 2D renderings; Jen’s signature lines and brush strokes make their way onto the hand-formed pieces.
