I would probably spend a lot more time in my laundry room if I had a basket like this! It’s ceramic. All of these lovely objects are ceramic, and all of them are part of the current show at LA’s ACME Gallery. American artist Matthias Merkel Hess has titled this show, Bucketry, and it is full of amazing ceramic pieces inspired by every day containers. Ok, sure, it would much harder to carry a ceramic laundry basket around the house, but I think it’s worth a try… DON’T DROP IT THOUGH!!!
A whole bunch of other words: Gorgeous colour, rich textures, unique style, bizarre narratives, beautiful illustration. I really need to get paid for this somehow because I really want to buy pretty much everything that I show. These glazed ceramics, by California based artist Amanda Smith, are definitely on my wish list… hint, hint.
