Ultra realistic ceramic sculptures that look like wood

Despite the cracks in the wood, the apparent decay, and the growth of moss, would you believe these aren’t pieces of lumber, but rather ceramics? Artist Christopher David White uses clay as his material in making deceptive sculptures that are simply mind-boggling. Works like ‘Asphyxia’ (the human head) and ‘Cycle of Decay’ (the wooden hand) make you wonder how much time he spent and how he went about in creating surreal and ultra-realistic pieces.

White explains his style and theme: ‘Through the use of trompe l’oeil, we look closer, we rediscover the amazement, joy, and tranquillity that come from our environment… Neither good nor bad, decay is simply a natural process of our world that at times can produce deeply moving and beautiful effects’.
