I have absolutely no problem with having heaps of unmatched plates, bowls, and cups in my cupboard, but I think if I want to start selling some items I need to develop a style or theme.
I think I have about 3 emerging in general: Mushrooms, Chickens and Sea life. Chickens and Mushrooms are my type of design - I'm drawn to 70s style and I think that these fit in well with this. Sea life is much more to do with my roots. I come originally from a fishing village and grew up with the fishing industry in different forms. Dad fished and supplied the Restaurant my Mum ran with Shellfish. Mum cooked and filleted fish before studying marine biology.
I'm thinking about doing more fish themed things. This will come as no surprise to P. You should see my pottery Pins.http://pinterest.com/zombiecazz/boards/
I had a look through Mum's fish identification Book to see if there are some cool coloured fish to use. So far I like the Opah, the Dragonets and the Lumpfish. Of course there is always the Salmon, crab, prawn and lobster too.
Anyway here's a little reminder of my interest in the sea.
