Here are some quiet, yet strong pots coming out of the sales gallery at The Clay Studio in Philadephia, PA.

David Eichelberger is currently a resident at Penland. I bought one of his lunch sized plates while I was in there and use it almost everyday. Thousands of hand painted, tiny fading lines live on the the rim of the plate. It has this intangible, quiet, meditative and soulful quality to it that I absolutely adore.
