Louise Boscacci makes functional objects with a twist, in fact, she makes sculptures, which could be mistaken for functional objects. Her work is unpredictably gorgeous, layered with meaning and time. Louise plays with sgraffito, inlay, and stencil, creating ceramic poetry. I love her subtle use of handwriting, it beckons you to come closer, to become intimate with her work.
