Incredible Ceramic Sculptures by Christopher White That Look Like Wood.
Christopher David White uses only clay to create deceptively detailed ceramic sculptures that look impeccably like real wood. White explains, “I utilize trompe l’oeil as a stylistic choice to emphasize the concept that our understanding of the world is an illusion.”
“There is a peace that can be found in even the simplest things. Ordinary elements within our environments offer both visual and physical reminders of our connection with nature. I am inspired by the small, overlooked aspects of our environment, finding enjoyment in the unexpected discoveries that come from simply being observant of the minutia and incorporating those mundane forms into my work. Crumbling Brick, rusting metal, and rotting wood become sources of inspiration. In my observations I also see similarities between the processes that occur in nature and those that drive us. By combining both man-made and natural elements within my work I hope to highlight the fact that we are not separate from nature but are, in fact, part of it.”
