Today is the reveal for the June 2017 Component Challenge, hosted by Janice Everett in her Facebook group Artisan Create Together. Mari Carmen of Majoyoal donated 12 pairs of her beautiful ceramic components for this Challenge. I received one of the violet pairs from the picture below.
I really admire Mari Carmen’s way with glazes. Her color combinations and the way she swirls the glaze colors together, without them ever looking muddy, just fills me with awe.
For some reason the larger Czech glass flowers in my photos look like they are blue. In reality they are lavender and purple with hints of gold. The Swarovski crystals are a pale, translucent green which echos the green at the top of Mari Carmen’s ceramic components.
Mari Carmen lives in Spain and I speak a little very basic Spanish. Whenever she comments on my Facebook page in Spanish, I try to read it without hitting the translate button, although she frequently comments in English too. If I am able, I like to comment on her posts in Spanish. You may remember that we lived in Oaxaca, MX for 3 months, two or three years ago. So I like to use my tiny bit of Spanish when I can.
