The Wall Street Journal delivered another stunning still life last weekend in the OFF DUTY section. The beautiful photo by J. Martin Ramin, styled by Anne Cardenas brought together sculptures and ceramics that take organics to another level. As Meredith Mendelsohn put it, these works of art have a super-natural appeal. They are beautiful, powerful, and calming... in the strangest way. J. Martin Ramin's photography of this assortment is just dreamy..
We've written about Sandra Davolio's work before. Her sculptural vessels look like they might have been thrown for the set of an Alien epic set on another planet, or a Disney film featuring a mermaid. The movement this artist is able to create in ceramic.. I've never seen it done quite like this before. J. Lohmann Gallery is the source in the US. Lohmann's well curated collection of artists have earned him quite a reputation in the world of all things beautiful and collected. Major art enthusiasts, Major Museums, and Major interior designers are all making sure to get in touch with this "by appointment only" resource! You should probably do the same. Spend some time clicking around highlights in this article. There is enough creative talent to keep you busy for hours... I know I was.
