David Scott Smith Ceramics
Poison Flower, with Garfish and Pinecone
2016
Soda fired stoneware and translucent porcelain
approx. 19" wide
The Poison Flowers are hybrids of original sculpted forms, and slip-cast and press-molded objects and textures from nature, which I have combined to suggest a ‘new’ organism. I also think of them as decorative arrangements, very similar to a floral arrangement. Flowers are often used to celebrate important moments of our lives, everything from love to death.

This flower was created using molds from: snake, fruit, pinecone, lace, garfish, tooled-leather, and wheel thrown objects
