Titled “Bottom Feeders”, this amazing series by Mary O’Malley series depicts cups, teapots, plates, saucers and bowls that appear to have been recovered from the sea-bottom, covered by flora and fauna over the years and wholly consumed by coral, seaweed, crustaceans, and tentacles. However, these remarkable pieces were actually created by O’Malley by hands, the teapots and other dishes are thrown and hand-built porcelain, to which she adds sculpted wildlife coated with red iron oxide. Here are part of the series, and you can discover more on O’Malley’s site.
Ceramic artist Jennifer McCurdya, a resident of Martha’s Vineyard, has been working with porcelain for over thirty years, creating swirling sculptures reflects the beauty of life that surrounds her. Her recent work is quite unique, besides the organic-looking thrown porcelain, she illuminates the insides of her porcelain vessels with 23 carat gold leaf.
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.
