Marta Turowska is the artist behind Clay Opera, a shop on Etsy that offers unique ceramic pieces. Marta creates these whimsical blows and plates in the shapes of animals like cats, hedgehogs, frogs, bats and wolves. Her works are all made completely by hand on a potter’s wheel and then the animals’ tiny features are painted on. These bowls are so pretty that I will only treat them like decoration instead of tableware. Of course, they truly deserved to be collected.
Created by Ukrainian artists Anya Stasenko and Slava Leontyev, below wonderful little porcelain animals figurines are just so cute that seem only a beautiful fantasy world can have them. With a wildly imagination, painstakingly detailed paint and brilliantly colorful designs, the creative duo creates tiny whimsical porcelain creatures (most measure anywhere from 4cm to 40cm). The artists don‘t consider themselves ceramists – one is a graphic artist and the other is a painting teacher. However,
they are downright humble about their work. These probably the cutest porcelain animals I ever seen.
Described as 3 dimensional drawings in the medium of ceramics, Katharine Morling’s work looks like made of paper at the first glance. Instead of simply making the pieces and leaving them in their ceramic form, Morling added some black in certain spots to create an illusive effect. Although she calls herself a ‘3D person’, these black drawing plays an important role in Morling’s sculptures, which tricks the viewer’s preconceptions about material and functionality. A toolbox, a bunch of cameras, a miniature horse, a sewing kit, take a look at what we presented here and find more on her website.
Years ago we featured one of the famous work from Hong Kong sculptor Johnson Tsang – “Ying Yeung“, a floating Coffee Kiss Sculpture (see photo below); and today we will bring you more stunning sculptures from Tsang. Generally, Tsang’s works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques accompanied by surrealist imagination, integrating the two elements, “human beings” and “objects”, into creative themes. No matter the coffee kiss, flower head or those interest bowl series, Tsang’s creative sculptures blurs the line between abstract and figurative art and bring a whole new vision of the ceramic sculptures.
