Hong Kong-based sculptor Johnson Cheung-shing Tsang (previously featured here) recently created this dreamy pair of porcelain vases, cut along their rims to reveal the profiles of people. When placed side by side they appear to be kissing. They remind us of another mysterious pair of smooching figures, The Lovers II, painted by Belgian surrealist René Magritte in 1928.

Visit Johnson Tsang’s blog for additional process photos and to check out more of his wonderful ceramic creations.

Marina Kuchinski: John Michael Kohler Arts and Industry Residency, 2014

During the residency I have created a few bodies of work including figurative animal and human forms as well as readymades and found object casts utilizing Kohler’s ceramics facilities. I have incorporate multiples and one of a kind pieces in work in series. The access to the unique facilities and the opportunity to work with Kohler associates provided me with an exceptional experience that has inspired my work.

Project created in Arts/Industry, a long-term residency program at the John Michael Kohler Art Center Inc. Arts/Industry takes place at Kohler Co.
