Can you feel Winter slowly slipping away?  We can!  With Spring in the air, we are looking to the latest colour trends.
We've been keeping an eye on Pantone's colour predictions for 2015, and are so excited by the range of soft blues for Spring.

"This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes restore a sense of well-being as we head into warmer months.
Many feel compelled to be connected around the clock because we are afraid we’ll miss something important. There is a growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, ‘en plein air’ theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.

As you can see, this year we are going for nature-like colours.  Here at Connemara Blue we love our blues and greens.  This year we have a great selection of plates, bowls and wall panels in every shade of blue imaginable.  From soft pastel blues to vivid sky-blues, and from tempting turquoise to deep sea blues, we have something for everyone.

Each sheet is a swirling dreamscape of moss, geological caramel, and jewel tones.  Heatwork heightens the interplay.   Fired characteristics may include areas of opacity, transparency, mottling, streakiness and polychromatic effects ranging from earth to jewel tones."

"How do you do that?"

All sorts of people ask all sorts of questions. They range from, “is this plastic?” (no, it isn’t) through, “do you paint the colour on afterwards?” (no, we use coloured glass), to “how do you squish it into shape?” (is ‘squishing’ even a word?!)
