We met these guys at NCECA this year. They had there own renegade NCECA show. I would like to say more but they are very secretive so i will just put in some pics.
This is all they say about themselves
We put ironic images on plates.
You can roll a fine cigarette on them or hang them on the wall.

I found this person on the site Etsy.com
i really like his work. It is terracotta with overlayed slip patterns.
What do you lot think?
This is what the artist (Nathan William) says about his work:
I have created a collection of functional pottery inspired by my travels to such places as Mexico, Italy and Thailand. I have experienced an uncanny vibration in each of these places, feeling their reverberations of history, color, joy, and mystery. Each is in a constant state of renewal due to the environment, neglect, time, and development. I am captivated by this process in which layers of color, pattern and texture build up quickly, only to wear away revealing the previous layers, which consist not only of paint on a wall but of the cultural, political and spiritual history of each.
My fascination for this history and the vibration of these places has become the basis for my pottery aesthetic. Using the juxtaposition of modest forms and rich surface decoration I have developed this collection, titled “Crossroads”. In this series I employ many layers of vibrant colors and textures then painstakingly sand back though them, creating weathered finishes. It is not my intent to reconstruct a certain time or place, but to craft enigmatic pieces which feel well traveled yet at home in the hand.
