West Virginia-based artist Brett Kern builds incredible ceramic sculptures that can easily be mistaken as inflatable toys. From bright dinosaurs to astronauts, his pieces are first sculpted from clay and then covered in a glaze to emphasize the material’s depth. Kern started out studying graphic design before switching to focus on ceramics after discovering his love for clay.
