Unusual Paper-like Ceramic Sculpture by Katharine Morling

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.

Slightly larger than life-size, the sculpture, called The Swimmer, was created by Artist Stefanie Rocknak. It is part of a 3-piece commission, The Triathlete. The other two pieces include The Biker and The Runner. Believe it or not, the artist takes a tree trunk-sized piece of wood and carves hyperrealistic figures of athletes into them as well as fine details like splashes of water.
