Ceramics | Sculptures
Perfected by clay artists over thousands of years, ceramic sculptures have been stalwarts of the art and interior design sphere for nearly just as long. As a result, it can be nearly impossible to find a home that doesn’t incorporate a ceramic sculpture of some kind in its decor. Given this popularity, it’s easy to underappreciate the beauty, singularity, and uniqueness the right classic or abstract ceramic sculpture can bring to your home or outdoor living space.
There is no limit to the varying styles or techniques talented sculptors can use to turn ceramic art into their specific masterpieces. However, like most maestros, the ceramic artistic greats quickly specialize in only a few techniques that turn their sculptures from art pieces to attention-grabbing centerpieces.
Modern, minimalistic, and championing organic shapes and clean lines, Jan Vogelpoel is an artistic powerhouse. Her sculptures exude awe-inspiring simplicity that captures the gaze whether it’s a vase or brutalist abstract tile.
On the other end of the spectrum, creatives like Agnes Sandahl draw inspiration from the greats in other mediums including the likes of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Brilliant turquoise and cerulean glaze the surface of some of her abstract ceramic sculptures while others project their earthen beauty by remaining elegantly unpainted.
And, for those in search of a one-of-a-kind nucleus to their design flow, acquiring a vintage piece by a ceramic icon like Aldo Londi is not only an admirable achievement but a milestone in any art lover's collection journey.Read less
