I like ceramicists. In fact, sometimes I wonder if I unintentionally collect them.
Maybe it's because they work with the earth, or perhaps it's because you can (sometimes) put flowers in objects that they make with their own hands. I have several potters or ceramicists, among my friends.
Pamela Sunday is one such friend. She makes sculptural objects that are inspired by nature. They remind me of cells, plankton and most all the work, below, of Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919), a 19th century artist and biologist.
Pamela has a studio in Brooklyn and if you're near the west side of Manhattan in the next few days, she is showing her work at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show March 26-29 at Pier 94 in a section called Made.
Two of our Pamela Sunday pieces. Sad to say that the sphere on the left broke during a move. However I think it's still really beautiful in its altered state.
