Alberto Bustos Creates Delicate Grass Sculptures Made of Ceramic
- Jessica Jungbauer
Alberto Bustos creates sculptures that imitate the beauty of nature, yet are entirely made of ceramic. Living in Spain, the ceramic artist only works with porcelain and stoneware. To make them look like plants in the wind, he first forms each single blade of grass out of clay and then exposes it to high temperatures. By carefully arranging them in an organic-looking way, Bustos’ work is an astonishing symbol of life and growth.
