I’ve always wondered how exactly an ugly lump of clay like this…

Turns into this beauty.

Sure, it takes time, practice, and tremendous amounts of skill. Perhaps as a way of helping outsiders understand the process, ceramist Eric Landon has offered up a unique way of witnessing the art in action.

Watch as he quite literally puts us inside his creation process — it’s mesmerizing and entirely awesome.

I could watch this all day. It’s so hypnotizing!

Marc Sinaj is such a talented sculptor, people who see his work don’t even know it’s his work. Not because they’re unfamiliar with his style, but because they thought the sculptures were actually real people. Some think a true work of art takes on a life of its own, but that’s taking it to a whole different level. Even knowing that people are quick to think his pieces are fellow people might not be enough for you to realize that these are actually sculptures. Sinaj’s attention to detail is just so impressive. Accuracy, if not brutal honesty, seems to be a hallmark of his work and really makes it worth checking out.

Sinaj is certainly not afraid to get real with his sculptures. If you’d like to see more of his work, check out his personal website.
