Well… I’m in love. This is the work of Indiana based artist Jessica Calderwood. Slip-cast vitreous china, steel, polymer clay, wool felt, sterling silver, plastic, milk paint and that’s only the list for ONE of the pieces up there! Here are Jessica’s words about her current sculptural work:

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

“My most recent series uses devices, such as drapery and stylized botanicals, to block out, cover, and hide parts of the human form.  These hybrid forms become a negation, a censoring or denial of what lies beneath. These anthropomorphic beings are at once, powerful and powerless, beautiful and absurd, inflated, and amputated.

I am interested in using traditional craft media, both for their creative properties, as well as their historical references to ‘marginal craft forms’, including enamel, porcelain, felted wool, and polymer clay. Throughout this exploration, I have been working in a miniature scale, as well as large-scale figurative.”
