Depicting Nature With Clay

Clay is a material we are all familiar with. Most of us played with it at some point or tried to make a sculptural thing out of it in school. To produce serious work from this material, a great amount of skill and patience is needed. Phoebe Cummings, who is an artist that got her MA from the Royal College of Art with a focus on ceramics and glass, started creating breathtaking floral arrangements from unfired clay.

Her work is inspired by nature and botanical illustrations. She makes her work on site and since the clay is unfired, it only lasts as long as the exhibition. Her work has so much fine detail and she depicts nature in a very realistic way with a material that nature provides us and because it is meant to be temporary, it reflects the cycles of nature that are too ephemeral.
