Celebrated UK-based artist Katharine Morling combines drawing and sculpting in her ceramic artwork series. All the pieces Katharine Morling constructs from white porcelain are outlined with black ink to deceivingly make each piece look like a 3D sketch.

Morling constructs her art pieces by beginning with white porcelain that she molds into everyday objects like match boxes, saws, flowers and sewing machines. Each piece is fire-blasted and baked in a super hot oven to harden the ceramic. From there, Morling uses black ink to add lines and shading to the ceramic objects as if they were penned sketches. The result is these exquisite black and white sculptures that look like flat drawings brought to life. Morling's quirky drawing style gives these white ceramic pieces depth by adding interesting visual appeal.
