Indiana-based sculptor Christopher David White progresses past the typical use of ceramic materials, forming the clay to look like well-worn wood. White renders rich textures in the pieces such as grain lines and bark using acrylic paint to articulate details such as moss and dirt in his surreal sculptures. Perhaps one of the most striking aspects of White’s talent is the diligently sculpted smaller details of the pieces. Micro-sized versions of objects such as brick walls and books are formed with impressive detail. White continues this aesthetic in his functional ware, making ceramic kettles and cups that look like something out of a J.R.R. Tolkien novel.
