These are not your Grandmother’s porcelain collectibles.
Artist Jessica Harrison has created a new series of iconic porcelain figurines. Her new body of sculptural work features romanticized women in pastel ball gowns with tattoos covering their bodies.

The artist Sarah Best creates astounding replicas of the female body, using it as a symbol that tracks the human desire for connection and intimacy; severed from the rest of the body, her sculpted hands and a cut-out collaged breasts take on a life of their own, worming their way up walls and pages and sometimes tracking blood in the process. The work, though sometimes gruesome, maintains a pulsating beauty; as if with clear intentions, her vital sculptures navigate space, dangling from hooks and exploring piles of cloth. Read More
