teresa chang is a philadelphia-based artist whose line of tableware is simply gorgeous. reminiscent of the same sturdy, warm feeling found in the work of san francisco studio heath ceramics, teresa's work is both elegant and visually substantial. i've always been a fan of plates and bowls that looked as if they were heavy and would feel comforting to have rest on your lap as you ate noodles (or ice cream) and watched a good movie- and these pieces look like just that. the colors are comforting and subtle, and the designs are simple and understated. and to top it off, most of the prices won't send you into credit card debt.
