This week's fantastic ceramics award goes to Charan Sachar.
I am teaching a workshop this summer at SCAD called "For the Table." So far our projects have consisted of candle holders and serving dishes. For our final projects, I wanted them to make salt and pepper shakers and butter dishes. While researching examples of butter dishes, I also found that there is a definite lack of well crafted, handmade butter dishes out there; however, I stumbled upon this great find through Etsy. These are pretty incredible. Charan makes these highly decorated forms that are reminiscent of henna tattoos and Indian designs. Check out his Etsy to find some more images of his work.
