Introducing: Glazed Earth!

Ceramicists and potters. I love them both. In a way they are the same thing, but for some reason the term potter and their accompanying pottery just seems very romantic to me. Glazed Earth seems like true pottery to me. I love the thought of Judy heaving slabs of clay around and using stamps and found objects to work that clay from a lump to a texturally awesome teapot. Or dish. Or vase. I love that the glaze says Hey! come look at me, and once you are there you must touch it. And of course, once you touch it you have to take it home. Because you can't possibly leave that gorgeous little thing, can you?
