Most of the new work shown on this site happily sacrifices any sense of design for the sake of anatomical/narrative detail, self expression, or technique of execution-- so these pieces make for a refreshing contrast.

I still don't feel these are all that successful, especially from the side view -- but I'm having a hard time recalling similar ceramics that are, unless we go back to some earlier civilizations.

Can anyone suggest some more recent, outstanding examples of similar things?

Re: a few sculptures

The first piece seems interesting, but the picture is too dark.
Mountshang, what you find so outstanding about the design of this piece? I find it ugly, that large fat head is a turnoff.

Hi, If you lopped off the heads they would look great (especially the first one) as pure form.
Have a great day,
Jeff

I agree the placement of the head is what gives those pieces trouble -- but that's also what makes them human figures instead of just "pure form"

Regarding the example that I showed (the little fat guy from the Tang Dynasty display in the Field Museum) - I have to confess that my photo was taken from a high angle, so, yes, the head does look even bigger than it really is. (and he had a big, fat head to begin with)

But I had a hard time finding enjoyable examples of highly stylized draped figures -- and would appreciate any more that people here can show.

Re: a few sculptures

Exept globe there is nothing looks same from different angels. is there?

well i will lop off the heads but should i keep the heads or bodys? i think they are good together.

i think best think to do is get the part which can improve you from critics. it will improve you. thats why there are schools and education.

i think evolution theory can explain why do we criticis and why we should get the part which can improv.
