Ceramic Mouths by Ronit Baranga
When I’m investigating Internet things for the bloggy, a pretty good barometer for whether I should post something or not is: “would I want to put my mouth on it?” I find this eliminates nearly 1/5th of all possible candidates, though I never once thought to instead ask: “would I let it put its mouth on me?”, because Ronit’s ceramic tableware possesses mouth things with toofs and tongues for licking inanimate funtime.

Venetian Harpy, a wonderful sculpture by Forest Rogers!
Working primarily with fiberglass resin, bronze and beads, London-based sculptor Kevin Francis Gray creates elegant artworks that hint at the occult. The mysterious beings Gray sculpts appear obscured, their heads bowed, inviting in various associations that leave their true identities shrouded in mystery. We begin to wonder whether these figures are humans or spirits from the unknown. Gray’s sculpting style is highly refined, and these figures appear haunting with their strangely life-like presence.
