Look! It’s moving. It’s alive. It’s alive… And it’s got flower growing out of its head! These awesome Frankenstein Flowerpots are the work of Oregon-based sculpture artist Kat Bones. Each ceramic monster pot measures 9″x10″x10″ and is hand-painted with an underglaze. Kat makes green, white and unpainted versions, all of which are sold through her Kat Bones Etsy shop. She also takes custom orders for different colors. or any custom color you can think of.
“Based on Andy Stott’s record »Luxury Problems« I created a set of 3 busts. In the same vein as his sample oriented, dark & chopped song structure, the process and methods used to create every bust are basically the same — with the help of »Autocad 123d catch« I scanned several stone sculptures and bones, recreated & remixed them digitally and created a set of surreal busts.”
Janine Antoni’s solo exhibition includes a collection of seven sculptural works and a video collaboration with choreographer Stephen Petronio. These new works emerge from her study of milagros, sculptural votive offerings used in latin cultures. Ranging from body parts to domestic objects, milagros are often hung in churches as symbols of things in life requiring prayer, healing and protection. Antoni’s milagros are prayers for embodiment.
Czech artist Monika Horčicová creates awesomely intricate and macabre sculptures of models of human bones that she fabricates using both cast polyester resin and 3D-printing.
The spectacular piece pictured at the top of this post was created in 2012 for Horčicová’s Bachelor thesis. Entitled Wheel of Life, it’s a 3D-printed sculpture made of 58 polyurethane resin legs and feet forming a wheel that depicts a “never-ending series of forward steps.”
Paint yer own voodoos are here! We have a small number available right now, and I’ll be putting them in the shop as soon as this is posted.
‘Church’ is the regal feline fellow, and stands roughly 4" tall, and about 2" across his base.
'Thinbone’ is his tiny kitten companion. At about 2" long and 1.25" tall he’s a shortie!
'Lawrence’ is the odd man out here… well, he’s a bird not a man, so I suppose he’s the odd bird out. He’s about 3" long and 1.5" tall.
These guys are cast resin from out original sculpts, and are available in 3 tones - white, medium grey & dark grey.

The answers were; Church - Winston Churchill the cat from Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, brough back to life by the ‘sour ground’. I loved this book as a kid. Thinbone - Thinbone the cat from Tad William’s novel “Tailchaser’s Song”. Lawrence - Named for D. H. Lawrence who wrote, “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”
There were some seriously clever answers for Lawrence in particular! We will be running another contest this coming Friday to give others a chance - look for a post about it Friday evening. Thanks for playing along guys!
