I really enjoy the combination of raw and glazed ceramic surface. I also really love the juxtaposition of classical or refined shapes and contemporary imagery. The latter seems to be appearing more and more in contemporary ceramic art. Sometimes this pairing is done seamlessly and provokes real contemplation and discussion... other times I think it's just like cutting shapes from a magazine and modge-podging them onto an otherwise beautiful vessel.
How do you think this style works best?
