Sorry for the absenteeism yesterday. I had to make a run out of town, so I was out the door before I had a chance to post. Not to worry, I'm here now.
This morning we see the work of Spanish designer, Manuel Estrada. These bowls fall in the realm of the impractical, but I'm not sure that would categorize them as un-functional. I suppose that they are exposed to the difficult contrast of wares that are made by a non-ceramicist. I think we need the fresh blood, as it challenges us to think in new and abstract ways. But there is something to be said for understanding function.
Plus I love Sushi Mario.
