Forms of Nature Created from Thousands of Ceramic Shards by Zemer Peled

Israeli artist Zemer Peled explores both the beauty and brutality of nature with sculptures constructed from ceramic shards.

The pieces billow and bloom like flowers or sea creatures, taking color from Peled’s use of blue cobalt found in designs and landscapes used in traditional Japanese pottery. The artist uses a slab roller to build sheets of clay which are fired and then smashed to pieces with a hammer, providing a contrast between smooth and soft materials that go into each piece.
