Although you might think these sculptures by Christopher David White are made of wood, they are actually solid ceramic sculptures. Using clay as his medium, the US-based artist creates hyper-realistic sculptures through which he explores the relationship between nature, man and impermanence.
Taking advantage of clay’s great ability to mimic different materials, White wants to emphasize that our understanding of the world is an illusion. Therefore, he creates an altered perception that forces the viewer to look closer.
Through his amazing works of art White also tries to express our connection with nature. “Crumbling brick, rusting metal, and rotting wood become sources of inspiration.

I started photographing Bonnie when she was 5 weeks old as a fun picture for my husband’s birthday. I built up a “party” setting and it looked like she was dancing and having a groovy time. After that I was so inspired and had so many ideas that we just continued taking photos and it evolved into “The Bonnie Days” project. Her interaction with the things around her is what makes the pictures “come alive.”
