Inspiration from a bottle?!

I saw this Awesome form in the magazine Ceramic Art Daily. It is truly a wealth of information and inspiration for projects you maybe be looking for as well as a great medium to give clay artists exposure such as Frank James Fisher.
Frank James Fisher was born in 1962 in Detroit, Michigan. Frank is an American ceramic artist. Fisher’s explorations of western raku exaggerate the graphic qualities of his work. Innovative clay construction methods push the limits of complex, ultra-thin porcelain sculptures fired in a raku environment. Fisher has evolved a variety of glaze application techniques, giving his ceramic surfaces a look of controlled chaos.

His ceramic art reveals a narrative of his life or current events found in the media. His most current works not only add beauty to the world but also convey a deep sense of thought toward consumerism. Well that’s what I got from it anyway.

Take a look at his site and let me know what you think and watch for my posting of how my own personal message in a bottle project went. Will it be a work of beauty and thought or a message you do not want to ever speak of again?
