ceramicist::nico masemula




These, ceramic pieces by the South African artist, Nico Masemula, completely charm me. I love how they look a bit like primitive Staffordshire figurines. 
 


I'm not going to pretend to know that much about ceramics or South African artists for that matter, but apparently, Masemula is greatly influenced/inspired by another, artist-potter by the name of Hylton Nel who is known for being," a master of combining whimsy with satire".Totally see it. 

 

 Even though I have a small collection of Staffordshire dogs hanging 'round these parts, I'd swap them out for these any day. Unfortunately, I think I'd be getting the better score.
