Luke O’Sullivan


Luke O’Sullivan‘s architecturally inspired sculptures and prints are endlessly fascinating. He uses screen printed drawings to create 2D and 3D works that explore undiscovered underground places.

Early interests in Nintendo games, maps, and science fiction movies contribute to the playful nature of my art. I like to describe my process as creating a lego set using my own hand drawn pieces. I use those pieces to create elaborate sculptures of cities, labyrinths and fantastical objects. Exploration and adventure are central to everything I make with each drawing and sculpture contributing to an ongoing catalogue of a strange invented world.

Haylee Ebersole


I’m really excited to share the work of Pittsburgh-based artist Haylee Ebersole with you because she uses an unusual material – dehydrated gelatin. Four years ago she bought 100 pounds of the stuff, learned about its chemistry, and has been using that same quantity to create her sculptures over and over again. Different additives create different textures.








Ben Russell / The Cactus House


My plants have been keeling over left and right this winter, I think I’ve lost five so far. Maybe it’s time to turn towards something a bit sturdier – like Ben Russell‘s The Cactus House. His beautiful stone art pieces mimic the bold organic forms of cacti and aren’t sure to wither any time soon.







The Lost Object


One man’s trash being another’s treasure very well may be The Lost Object‘s favorite phrase. The anonymous artist works with discarded and abandoned materials to create installations and sculptures through a zen process where nothing is set in stone except achieving balance and harmony.

I make stuff from junk. I pick up messes and try to make them into something I think looks good. I use the junk from the city, I use the stuff from the field, I use the bits in the forest, and the things in the trash. I hunt, I collect, I gather, but only what I need for the work, for the play. Color, shape, composition. Some lost stuff gets found again.







Lydia Ricci


Philadelphia-based artist Lydia Ricci literally turns trash into treasure. Each of her miniature sculptures is created from bits and pieces of scraps she collects and is based on a distinct memory. I like imagining the patience and dexterity that must go into each little creation!










Honor Freeman


I doubt there’s a more fitting start to the new year than Honor Freeman‘s porcelain bars of used soap and sponges. Fresh starts, wiping the slate clean, and many other sentimentalities ring true as each of us hammers out just what it is we’d like to accomplish in the twelve months to come.

Noticing and quietly commemorating the smaller moments that are a constant rhythm of the everyday continues to be a preoccupation in my work. I seek to make visible the relationship between us and the objects we use, the gestures, mundane activities and humble objects, like small markers silently measuring the hours and marking the days. Thoughts of preserving, measuring and marking time’s passing occupy the work during the making. There is a correlation between actions and gestures used when engaging with objects and those used during the process of making that informs the work. Using the mimetic qualities of clay via the process of slipcasting, the work playfully interacts with ideas of liquid made solid due to the processes of making that are fundamental when working with clay. The porcelain casts become echoes of the original (object), the liquid slip becoming solid and forming a memory of a past form, the essence of an object. Small moments caught and made solid as if frozen in time – liquid made solid.









Fabio Viale


As of this moment Fabio Viale is absolutely one of my favorite artistic discoveries of 2017. Staying true to his Italian heritage, Viale adds an interesting twist to already stunning marble sculptures – intricate traditional tattoos. Full back pieces, covered hands, shoulders, and more. Have a look at his portfolio to see what else Viale can do with marble (hint: it’ll surprise you!).








Juliette Clovis


Juliette Clovis is a multi-disciplinary artist who focuses on the links between human and nature, the opposition between life and death, and the dialogue between tradition and modernity. Her exploration of female identity and the representation of women in contemporary society and its history is completely fascinating. The most recent porcelain female busts she’s created are completely transformed into hybrid beings, mixes of history, myths, and chimerical dreams.
