Katharine Morling Creates Illusion of Drawing with Ceramic Sculptures

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Katharine Morling’s monochromatic ceramic sculptures carefully utilize black lines to create the illusion of two-dimensionality. Morling sculpts mundane objects out of a brittle, white clay, laying them out like still lifes that resemble ballpoint pen doodles on paper. The doodle-like quality is an important aspect of the work. Morling isn’t interested in building ceramic replicas of cameras or typewriters: Instead, she reinterprets them with her hands and her imagination, inviting us to consider how the objects that surround us shape our thinking.
