One of our favorite design trends is texture. This design aesthetic is showing up on everything from vases and tabletop pieces to wall art and clothing. The subtle texture that follows the flow of the form evokes a calm, soothing look, while texture that stands in stark contrast to the shape can add an edgy vibe.
Textures to watch include wicker, rattan, hammered, fluted, basketweave, palms, greenery, embossed and etched designs. You can transform the overall feel of a shape, not only in how the pieces are decorated, but how it is displayed with other design elements.
Mayco’s Textured Vases, Mugs and Planters, and other textured shapes hit the mark when it comes to beauty, function, and decorating opportunities. Accentuate the texture of these forms, whether delicate or defined, with a variety of glaze applications.
Our newest textured shapes are some of the most unique in the market and we’re excited to see what you create with our six new textured earthenware bisque shapes: three new tumblers and three new mugs!
Visit our Project Library and Forms Section on our website to see a variety of textured shapes and glaze applications.
In addition to our textured forms, you can use our Sculpting Medium to a decorative shape such as a vase or planter then add Stroke & Coat on top to create simple designs or a wash of color to enhance the texture. Cobblestone Glazes are perfect for creating a textured surface. A cactus looks extra funky when it has a textured surface. Be sure to consider the piece you are decorating when adding texture since Cobblestone and Sculpting Medium should be used on decorative surfaces.
