Porcelain sculptures inspired by fractal patterns found in nature


These intricate hand-built porcelain sculptures were created by Irish artist Nuala O’ Donovan that resemble fractal geometry found in nature like coral, teasel flowers and pinecones. “The result of using the characteristics of fractal geometry in making decisions regarding the form of the sculptural pieces, is that the form is resolved but retains a sense of potential change. The viewer engages with the piece by allowing their own visual experiences to influence their view of the outcome of the form and its future possibilities.” Nuala O’Donovan explained. “I hope that this aspect of my work also evokes the transitory quality of living organisms, combining traces of history, the present and the future, in the patterns that make up their surfaces and forms.”
