Delicate Destruction

What happens when you combine heavy weaponry, delicate ceramics and force? Evidently a blunder of shattered porcelain. In Laurent Craste case, it's quite the opposite. Craste, a Montreal based artist, simply creates this contemporary sculpture series with precision and tenuity. Using an open oven, Craste maintains the position to the sector on the ceramics before being heated in an open oven, creating a 'melting' shape that becomes permanently embedded in the urns, vases, and other ceramics.

But what can we understand about the philosophy behind this unusual, yet strikingly beautiful work? I'm stumped at the idea behind this series, and I want to hear other people's idea behind this eclectic sculpture series. Leave your thoughts and tell me what you think.

You can catch more of his work here.
