“Medium Bowl” by Bonnie Seeman

The Bowl is made from ceramic ribs and with the intervening muscles. The Medium Bowl is made of ceramic muscle tissue.

Inside and outside the bowl there are green leaves.  Into the sides of the bowls are carved insets with insects made out of glass. Below are closeup images of those very fine details on these pieces.

The previous four ceramic forma are all created from shapes that mimic anatomical structures. The neck of the vase in the Large Vase Form is made from vertebrae; the sides of the Large Red Teapot shows thick bundles of muscles.

I liked her pieces, because of her ingenious use of the shape of anatomical structures to form ceramic vessels. The bones and muscles look just like the real stuff.
