I was browsing etsy and came across the wonderful work of Kristen Kieffer. She stamps her work, uses sprigs and slip to give them that ornate look. The pieces are also altered and carved. You can see there is lots of detail in every inch of her pieces.
The pieces are glazed in nice soothing colors. I have seen her work published at other places too, but coming across her website was great. Do have a look at her process and you will really appreciate the patience it takes to make good handmade pottery.
