I am attracted to this work by Ashley Howard by the looseness of form and the abstract drawings in translucent colors. These illustrations seem to float upon the surface of the pots. One of my favorites is the mostly blue teabowl that also includes cobalt decals.
Howard, a UK based ceramic artist, creates work in porcelain and stoneware...vessels inspired by ritual and ceremony, especially those in the Japanese tradition .He has exhibited, demonstrated and lectured all over the world, spending considerable time in Japan.
More information and yummy work by Ashley Howard is available on his website.
