Robin Van Valkenburgh makes what she calls “pop surreal ceramics.”

Many of these inspire a sense of nostalgia in me, while catering to my love of the absurd (beloved childhood characters mix with traditional ceramic creatures and shapes).

Oso Polar Creations

Posted in creatures, sculpture, you can't handle the cute with tags , , on July 5, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Be careful if you like cute things (that lean a little left of center). Oso Polar’s creations are addictive, and you may find yourself clicking through all 80 pages of her handmade creature sculptures on deviantART. Not that I can tell you from experience or anything (*shift eyes*).

Seiji Kawasaki: Wooden Food

The textures and hyper-real presentation he achieves are pretty incredible, no?

When I first saw some of these, I thought they were paintings. He can achieve an incredible sense of movement and weightlessness.

Carol Milne: Knit Glass

Posted in craft, sculpture with tags , on February 24, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Carol Milne has been knitting since she was 10 years old. She has a degree in Landscaping Architecture, and developed a technique involving wax casting, mold-making, and kiln-casting that has the appearance of perfectly “knit” glass.

I wish I could get one of these as a tribute my grandmother, who was always knitting. So cool…
