I wish this blog could make the noise these make me feel, but it cannot. Mary Rogers ceramic forms represent organic form and freedom. These works are absolutely gorgeous and delicate. I love the deckles edge and the holes in the first piece, the crackle glaze interacting with all that is beneath the surface, and the octopus looking innards of the third bowl. Her playfulness with symmetry is both engaging and appropriate for these porcelain forms.
