Jose A. Roda's latest art series depicts face-painted imagery that is displayed atop a set of ceramic plate canvases. The result is a set of decorative housewares that captures unhappy clown characters.

These male and female characters are dressed in every-day clothing but sport elaborate face-paint and makeup looks that hint at their past or current life as a children's entertainer.

Despite of their festive clown makeup, these characters evoke a range of sad emotions and appear gloomy and sullen in this set of ceramic plate portraits.

Jose A. Roda's latest art series proves that even clowns can have their off days and showcases his characters in a gloomy state of mind instead of one that is enthusiastic and happy. Stats for Unhappy Clown Housewares Trending: Older & Chilly
