Material Experimentation

What is it about these works that makes them so magical? Each of these designers/artists seem to move between organic forms, materials and manipulated process. Art and nature battling it out in experimental, independent objects. In all occasions the artists also seem to be having fun with what they are doing. They are taking risks and pushing boundaries in long established mediums. Glaze coated so thick it is meant to explode in the kiln (Kurwata); turning a useless, broken ceramic object into a crystalline exotic hybrid species, (Wegwerth), fractals, fossils, and nature in exquisite glass objects (Kramer), and experimental glass constructions that are as informed by nature as by brutalist architecture. (Wolfe).
