Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda creates still life sculptures that are reminiscent of pixelated digital images. What appears to be a pixelated photo collection is actually an image series that spotlights the artist's intricate ceramic pieces.

Each still life sculpture is crafted out of square-shaped fragments which are joined to create everyday object depictions. Whether recreating an egg inside of a pan, a roll of office tape or a pair of worn sneakers, Toshiya Masuda appeals to both tech and art enthusiasts.

His ceramic art series also includes other familiar objects like tea kettles and even flowers which are crafted to appear surprisingly realistic despite of their pixelated construction. Creating what the artist calls an "image gap," these sculptures blur the lines between digital and real-life imagery.
