Depending on where you live, summer can range from mild to sweltering. But whatever the weather we want to keep making! For summer 2019 we are inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand. We are looking to geometric, hand-painted or mosaic designs, but also to simple lines and earthy shades with splashes of blue-green glaze. As summer is generally warmer we are looking for designs that are cool and airy for the daytime, and a few that give a little more protection from the elements at night.
As always, we are so grateful that you continue to share your ideas with us.
