Montreal artist Laurent Craste’s contemporary sculpture series shows delicate urns, vases and teacups attacked with heavy tools such as axes, crowbars and knives. However, the china is not smashed to pieces, as is usually the case when you combine delicate ceramics, metal objects and force.
Instead, Laurent Craste’s pieces are hit before they are fired in the kiln, resulting in the “weapon” embedded in the delicate ceramic piece.
