I woke up from a dream this morning with the realization that my current glaze pallet is similar to that of colorful macarons. Inspiration in retrospect? I’ve been thinking a lot about naming my glazes with better names. In my studio they are named in a very utilitarian way: name of base glaze + colorant. And for Etsy, I use descriptive words like “tomato red” and “creamy yellow.” I would like to come up with glaze names that are both descriptive and can stand alone. If I start doing some custom orders, I’ll want to have glaze chips where the color can be easily picked out. So all of this was on my mind when I had this dream about macarons.
So now I am thinking about food flavors as names of glazes: pistachio, tangerine, lavender, caramel, mango, lemon, red velvet, mint, raspberry, apricot, maple, gingerbread, pineapple…. to name a few. I still have to ponder all of this, but I am thankful to my dream this morning for helping me think through this!
