Robin

This is one of Heather Goldminic's Robin's Song Collections: Pretty Tie Lite Holder or Bowl with a Robin sitting on the edge. By placing a robin on top of the bowl, which could look quite simple, this clay work appears to be more animated and playful.

Stacked Ceramics Project

Found:http://anomalycentral.wordpress.com/2008/09/23/behold/

I was looking at the syllabus and brainstorming about the "stacked" piece. I found this stacked container and really liked it because of the design and movement of the piece. I enjoy the abstract qualities within this container.

Vintage Vibe


 
Not only do I love the bright mustard color, but also the flower imprint on this ceramic piece. It gives it a vintage vibe!

Mug and Plate Collection


This is another collection of mugs and plates designed by Kate Spade. I like how although it is modern and clean, it has organic circles on it. Thus, giving it a lighter, carefree feel.

Kate Spade Mug




This is a mug designed by Kate Spade. I love the addition of multicolored stripes. I hope to do a design like this on the mugs I create!

Look closer.

Delapre Abbey's art is inspired by the thought of the spirit of the woodland passing through the locked door to gain access to the garden. She wove a part-figure in copper wire leaf patterns emerging from the door.

Now, that's what I call art!!

These porcelain skulls are really cool-beautiful but creepy at the same time.

I like making skull. While browsing the internet for some skull ceramic, I stumbled upon this blog http://tzuza.wordpress.com/tag/clay/ . This guy Shiraz Yanir made a very good skull. I really admire his work.

This is the skull he made which is very detail and nearly similar to the real skull.



Most of Meredith Dittmar's sculptures are composed in 3D with strange figures and animals in surreal settings. Dittmar's human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness . Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space.

Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier is the photographer I mentioned in my last post. I watched a segment about her on 60 minutes, and it was really cool to hear about her story. She was a street photographer in New York and Chicago and not a lot of people knew about her until recently. A man who was looking through old rolls of film for some job he had to do, and came across all of Maier's film at an auction. He decided to buy all of them for a small price of $200, and was shocked to find out who this photographer really was. Ever since then he has been archiving all of her photos and the original prints sell for thousands of dollars. They are all posted in portfolio's on the website: http://www.vivianmaier.com. Check it out and watch the small video, it's a really cool story.

Ceramic Artist Yuri Fukuda's work


World's Biggest Self Portrait

I've always loved photography, but lately I've been a lot more active in recent news. I just completed a lithography project based off of a Vivian Maier Self Portrait. I googled more about famous self portraits for an inspiration for my next litho and came across a really cool story. This woman is trying to make the world's largest self portrait. The camera is unbelievably complex and it was a really cool story to read about. Check out the link:

I really like how dynamic this piece is. It's all held up by the splash, and it seems to defy gravity.

Barry Gregg's clay work

This is a clay work of Barry Gregg. This one is said to be inspired by the artist's dog, Parker. I like how the artist plays with the color, texture, patterns and his pet that the pot is not only pragmatic but also playful and beautiful.
