In the Press

Joanna from Anthology Magazine says:

"Quiet, gentle, and lovely, these ceramic pieces are made at the hands of Yasha Butler. These sloping and organic, irregular pieces are reminiscent of a sweet poem. They don’t command your attention by screaming, but instead are subtle enough to keep the viewer engaged and curious. The wobble of a plate’s rim, the quirky wide base of a bowl, even the irregular curve of a spoon’s handle—the entire story that they tell is one of subtlety and imperfection. Yasha’s statement of work even declares, “I want the curves and slopes of my vessels to pull you softly into a moment of silent contemplation.” It is safe to say that Yasha has accomplished her mission."

Recently we took a trip through rural Catalunya.  We travelled in the area between Vic and Olot.  The landscape and views were breathtaking, but what really caught my eye were these beautiful textures I found in a small town called Rupit.
