Omega Speedmaster GSOM ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ My favourite out of all the ceramics. The case looks like steel with its subtle brushed finishes on some surfaces and that platinum dial….😍 It’s not love at first sight like the DSOM but once it grows on you it’s hard to put it down. ☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️☑️

Impressive Ceramic Sculptures by Christopher David White Look Like Wood
Sculptor Christopher David White creates impressive ceramic sculptures, which resemble the characteristic of wood through atrompe l’oeil style. By deceptively molding wood’s flaws, such as its knots and veins, White aims to capture the perpetual transformation of nature and the cycle of growth and decay. By exploring the beauty of wood, he depicts the impermanence of nature and its relationship with humanity. Since White successfully replicated his subject’s texture, colors and shape, the concept of illusion exposes the juxtaposition between artifice and nature in art.
Trompe L’Oeil Ceramics That Imitate the Natural Appearance of Decaying Wood
Ceramicist Christopher David White accurately captures the decay of wood through ceramics, portraying the distinct character of the natural material from the fine wood grain to the light ash coloration at the pieces’ edges. By utilizing a trompe l’oeil technique, White forces the viewer to take a closer look at his work while also investigating the truth hidden in the hyperrealistic sculptures.
John Almeda works in small scale, perfecting tiny pottery spun on his self made “Curio Wheel”. If you were to come across his work without added scale, it would seamlessly mesh with the environment as any other piece of ceramic pottery would. Include scale, however, and the work shrinks down to about the size of a fingernail, giving you a deeper understanding of the immense craftsmanship and time that goes into every piece and small detail.
I am a bit of an extremist. For many years I was throwing massive pieces, the bigger the better type mentality. While browsing a bookstore, I came across a book called “Creating Ceramic Miniatures” that really changed my whole outlook and approach. I went to the opposite end of the spectrum and began working in 1″ scale. Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation. I enjoy the process of making small vases and bowls that without any scale or context look exactly like their larger counterpart in detail and proportion.
Art is constantly flowing on our Facebook. Hope to see you there! /Chaz
Pirate ship on a bottle.
Unfired white earthenware. The masts and sails are being made from wood, cloth and twine and will be added after this has been glazed in a couple of weeks. More pics coming soon :-)
This new stamp, let me show it to you. I sent these out today so I feel like I can post them now!
dragonthebetta commissioned me to make two custom crested gecko diet sized dishes with Tyrannosaurus rex footprints!
I had to sculpt a new stamp, but I really like how it came out. It might be my new favorite. Now that I have it, it means I can make a lot of dishes with it in the future. I’ll be listing some dishes for sale with this stamp soon; I’ll post to my blog when I do so.
