Liquid Solids: Mindbending Ceramic & Stainless Steel Masterpieces Sculpted by Hand

1 Johnson Tsang buddha

It’s hard to say what is most impressive about Johnson Tsang’s sculptures. The sheer technical skills involved in creating such realistic details, the amazing fluid continuity between the parts, the way solids are made to look like flowing liquids, or the powerful messages behind some of them? In this first compelling sculpture, we see a gun melting and, as the liquid pools below, it begins to form the face of Buddha, suggesting that the power is in our hands to end violence, which will lead to peace on Earth. Human faces are common in Tsang’s works appearing in flower petals and ceramic splashes flowing from tea cups. Each piece looks remarkably fragile, yet is sculpted so perfectly that it stands strong.

A Splash of Life: Creatures Get Liquefied

“Water is my element!” states German digital artist and photographer B-O-K-E on his deviantART page. Although he does not reveal much about himself, other than the equipment he uses and his Taurus zodiac sign, even masking his face in his profile picture, his photo manipulations are certainly refreshing. He transforms mammals and insects into the very molecule they depend on for survival: water. His works are like an homage to this liquid foundation of life- exploding, splashing, and dripping off of the creatures it has formed.
