I stumbled upon the work of ceramist Nancy Wickham Boyd via the Mudpuppy blog, and loved the textures and colours.

My searching on Google hasn’t thrown much light on Nancy Wickham Boyd’s ceramics, unfortunately, but I did find out that her work is highly regarded and most collectable, and that she lived and worked in Vermont, USA, during the 1950s.
