I know many of you are probably familiar with this Japanese-American potter. But I just had to share some of her work because it is so damn brilliant. Sekino-Bové's illustrative skill and trademark silhouette style are so dramatic and luscious. I think this is something I might try in my own work at some point... decorating with black underglaze and coating in bright, colorful, transparent glazes.
