Laura Carlin gave this week's lecture at college. She has illustrated Ted Hughes' "Iron Man" and cites as influences the books and maps of her childhood, including Edward Ardizzone (one of my favourite illustrators) and the maps of battles that one of her brothers drew.

She showed this bowl among many delightful slides of her work -  it reminded me of Harriet Powers' famous bible quilt, updated with a bit of Gee's Bend. And translated into ceramic.

See more of her ceramics on her blog.
