Katherine Morling has created even more of her illusive 3D artwork using ceramics and drawing techniques. Instead of simply making the pieces and leaving them in their ceramic form, the added touch of black in certain spots creates an illusive effect, making the everyday objects look like drawings in real life.

Because of these black marks throughout the items, the eyes are constantly confused as to whether or not they are staring at objects on a page or 3D artwork based in reality. However, this is exactly the effect Morling is going for. As stated by DesignBoom, "the trompe l’oeil effect forces the viewer’s perspective to see the objects in multiple contexts." While this can be slightly straining for the eye, the genius behind the designs cannot be denied, as the artist cleverly experiments with traditional mediums.
