Klara Kristalova’s Grotesquely-Beautiful Ceramic Busts

klara kristalova

Klara Kristalova is a sculp­tor who mostly works ceram­ics that have cap­ti­vated me with their beau­ti­ful grotesque­ness. She fash­ions a lot of busts that fea­ture some­thing odd about them, includ­ing moth and masks that are attached to their faces. The nar­ra­tive they con­vey is a dark one.

Kristalova’s fan­tas­ti­cal works are inspired by tra­di­tional myths, fairy tales, old DC comics, and the author Oscar Wilde. In addi­tion, she explores inno­cence and hor­ror that recall child­hood night­mares and fan­tasies. I can def­i­nitely see these ceram­ics as a series of stress dreams! What do you think?
