i’m jealous of matthias merkel hess

I would probably spend a lot more time in my laundry room if I had a basket like this! It’s ceramic. All of these lovely objects are ceramic, and all of them are part of the current show at LA’s ACME Gallery. American artist Matthias Merkel Hess has titled this show, Bucketry, and it is full of amazing ceramic pieces inspired by every day containers. Ok, sure, it would much harder to carry a ceramic laundry basket around the house, but I think it’s worth a try… DON’T DROP IT THOUGH!!!

{Bucketry runs until December 21st. Thanks to Junkculture for finding this work!}

    I love art that pushes the limits of what people think is “art.” Everyday is a creative, beautiful, artistic adventure and it’s great to see someone inspired by what others see a everyday-mundane.

    Beautiful stuff… and you should see his stand-mixers! This artist has a really unique perspective — whimsical, fun, but also something to say.
