I've seen and admired Ben Carter's work on many of my blog-spherical trips mining the ceramic world. This dogwood painted platter has always stuck out in my mind. His particular aesthetic really hits the mark for me. It's beautiful, sensual and also solidly functional. I would really like to get a piece of his one day.
I just spent all morning discovering Ben's blog "Tales of a Red Clay Rambler" (thank you Martina Lantin) - it's energetic, insightful and informative - I found it very inspriational!
