William Kidd‘s ceramic sculptures imagine lifeforms that don’t exist in our world. The artist attributes the particularly organic appearance of his pieces to “the choice of a low-fire red earthenware clay which is then finished using oxide stains, underglazes, and my signature crawl glaze.” He says that those materials allow the richness and natural vibrancy of his work to shine.
“Inspired by the beauty found in the natural world, my work is not an imitation of any real living thing, but rather life forms that might exist in some other worldly place,” he says. “Microorganisms, fungi, seeds, cacti, and sea life have been observed in great detail which have inspired me to create these ‘organic possibilities.’”
