I have to admit, it takes a pretty awesome potter to impress me these days. The other day, I was on the Philadelphia Restaurateur Marc Vetri's Osteria sight looking at gift cards. In the "Gift" section of the website were some pretty cool bowls. I liked them; I thought they had a personality. So I clicked through to the artist's website and found Liz Kinder.
Using a variety of glazing and decorating techniques, Liz produces stoneware and earthenware which is at once interesting and lively. I find it so interesting and inspiring to see that someone is doing this kind of work. She is a production potter with lots of places nationally to buy her things. Go visit her website and check out all of her creations.
