It's incredible what clay artists are capable of doing. It seems as if this sculpture took weeks to create. I enjoy this unique balancing clay sculpture.

Here is another ceramic piece at the UIMA that I saw that I thought was incredibly interesting:
Turquoise Inlet by Wayne Higby, 1983.It wasn't necessarily the shape of the pottery that intrigued me, but the glaze (painting?) style on the outside. It seems incredibly detailed. I would assume this style was planned as opposed to just randomly painting it with glaze. It kind of looks like desert mountains against a blue sky, doesn't it?

I love these clay works by Lucinda Brown. Her signiture trait is sculpting faces into her art pieces. These ones are so beatiful and delicate. I am curious as to how she created them.. Anyone have any ideas? I would love to be at this level one day, although this would take loads of skill..
