Maria Rubinke’s Grotesque Ceramic Sculptures

Maria Rubinke1

Emerging Danish ceramicist Maria Rubinke blends the childlike and innocent with the grotesque in her sculptural work, creating pristine porcelain toys and corrupting them with streams of red glaze emanating from rips and tears in their anatomies. –HiFructose




More from –HiFructose:

The porcelain toys become biological beings whose visceral injuries can be difficult to look at despite the chubby-cheeked figures’ adorable countenances. Elements of the grotesque and the cute break down, pulling the viewer between these opposing poles.




Scott is from San Francisco, he paints, draws, writes, edits, cuts out beer tickets and uses them at the bar. He is good at all of those things.
