London-based artist Katharine Morling creates awesome ceramic sculptures that look like life-size sketches of everyday objects, which she describes as ‘three-dimensional drawings’.

“The black and white flat illustrations on each white ceramic item give it a curious sense of being both two and three-dimensional at the same time. The trompe l’oeil effect forces the viewer’s perspective to see the objects in multiple contexts.”

The simple rendering style belies the complexity of each piece - a camera bag with pockets overflowing with gear, an old-timey cash register with cash and coins spilling out of the drawer, a chest of drawers full of pinned insect specimens. There are so many pieces and parts, but take away the black lines and each one is simply a piece of white ceramic.
