Here are some of the coolest I have found. I have to start with one from Eva Zeisel as I wrote about her in my last blog. I love the curves and this actually comes apart and can be used as separate vases.
The second is from a friend of mine, Mike Jabbur. His pottery is so unique; I love the forms and colors he creates. I have one of the bowls in a beautiful pale blue and it sits on my dresser. He describes his work so well, "My pottery is about these very entities: material, form, utility, interaction and experience; through the exploration of these entities, I intend to re-engage the user with the vessel." Please visit his webiste: www.mikejabburceramics.com Here are just a few examples of his work..
