David Scott Smith Ceramics
Poison Flower, Feral Bloom (with porcelain illuminated)
2016
Soda fired stoneware and translucent porcelain
approx. 25" 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: fruit, alligator skin, warthog tusks, antique ceramics, squash, and the upper palate of a wild boar
