    Cody Hoyt is the maker behind these extraordinary stoneware vessels, which display exteriors inspired by both organic (tree rings, Earth’s layers, bacon) and artistic patterns. They are really just beautiful and that’s why I want to share them with you. TwistedBoxII-CodyHoyt TwistedJug-CodyHoyt LargeOctahedron-CodyHoyt StonwareVessel-CodyHoyt

    Lydia Hardwick is a ceramic artist sculpting objects that look very little like ceramic (which is my favorite type of ceramic work). She studied at the Royal College of London and has completed two residencies in Scotland and Germany. The former leading to a show later this year at the An Tobar Gallery.

    As another artist I discovered through Buy Some Damn Art, I wanted to feature her on my blog because her pieces inspire me to make some wild lacunose onlays. Her color choices are brilliant and the abstract shapes she creates are captivating in their organic and sometimes sickly qualities.

    Saturated with color and humor these goofy ceramic pieces from Lili Scratchy are just brilliant. I mean, who can resist little spoon people or quirky body parts with eyeballs. mathematiques-liliscratchy face-liliscratchy meringues-liliscratchy debouts-liliscratchy plateroar-liliscratchy

    There are so many wonderful elements coming together in the sculpture work of Matt Wedel: dripping color, floral blooms atop plump foundations, irregular rocky structures and the glossy finish of ceramic; making each piece a captivating object.

    Are they alien life-forms or desserts of the future? Either way, these sculptures from Nathan Prouty are scrumptious. As a self-proclaimed image junkie, Nathan collects from all corners of the internet, compounding his ever evolving collection of imagery into these charming objects.

  6. Artist: Amanda Michelle Smith

    smallarmy_amandasmithAmong these works are Darger-esque scenes depicting a fierce army of young girls, pristinely dressed in baby-doll dresses and knee-high socks equipped with golden shields and war helmets. Combining ceramics and oil paints (with a dash of gold lustre), Amanda Michelle Smith builds a pastoral realm of imagination around childhood curiosities applying firmness and courage to her female characters.
