I love the first one. It's a great example of that style and the clay looks very high quality. It would be at home on a tea table 300 years ago! The second is very simple and elegant and I think the thirds is a good example of what the artists are doing today with multiple colors-- so much harder than it looks to do well.

I really long to hold them. :lol:
