This Sculptor Will Mess With Your Head By Making You Think His Work Is Made From Wood

Christopher David White (previous post here) is a talented American sculptor who might actually trick you with his amazing creations. This artist makes you admire his artworks twice by creating an illusion of a completely different material so you always have to go back and check them one more time. White’s sculptures are handmade from clay and rendered with strong attention to detail, resulting in gorgeous ceramic artworks that look like petrified wood.

Sculptor’s works explore the relationship between humans and nature, and how both are in a constant state of flux between growth and decay. “Change is a constant reminder that permanence is the ultimate illusion,” writes the artist on his website. “It is through the creation of hyper-realistic sculpture that I explore the relationship between nature, man, and the phenomenon of impermanence.”
