I think it was Peter Voulkos  - pioneer of Abstract Expressionism in the US in the 60's -who was once quoted as saying that the art of being expressive consists of sensing at which point to stop... Barry Stedman is a British ceramist who treats his pots as canvases with an extraordinary ability to combine the texture of the clay, the 3-dimensional presence of the vessel and the colours, brushstrokes and mark-making in a totally satisfying and inspiring way. 
I purchased a plate from him last year at Ceramic Art London and it never ceases to provide contemplation and pleasure!
