Just stumbled across this great shop/website/blog www.studiokotokoto.com
The feature some really great artists, not just ceramicists.

I've seen Birdie Boone's work in person before, but I didn't know her work was hand-built. I'd say the approach with the majority of hand-built pots reveals that they were constructed with slabs. That is certainly not the case with Birdie Boone's work. There is so much movement and "plush-ness", this whole time she had me thinking they were altered off the wheel. I hold great respect and appreciation for many hand built potters, but I've never seen such dynamic pots as those created by Birdie Boone.
