These pixelated versions of everyday objects looks like they’re made of LEGO bricks, but they’re actually works of ceramic sculpture created by Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda. For a playful series entitled Low Pixel Masuda has sculpted everything from a fried egg and a pair of running shoes to a life-size tricycle, a cigarette burning in an ashtray, and wilting flowers. Each sculpture is a tangible work of art that looks like it would blend right into the background of an 8-bit video games.
