Jessica Harrison’s Porcelain Horror Figurines.

Never you mind what I was originally looking for on Google. All you need to know is that I found something much better by accident. Porcelain Horror Figurines made by artist and sculptor, Jessica Harrison! Enjoy…











Here’s a little bit about Jessica Harrison from her own website…

Born in St Bees in 1982, Jessica moved to Scotland to study sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art in 2000, going on to do an MFA before completing a practice-led PhD in sculpture in 2013 funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Her research considers the relationship between interior and exterior spaces of the body, but looks neither inwards towards a hidden core, nor outwards from the subconscious, instead looking orthogonally across the skin to the movement of the body itself, using the surface of the body as a mode of both looking and thinking.

Moving beyond a bi-directional model, Harrison proposes a multi-directional and pervasive model of skin as a space in which body and world mingle. Working with this moving space between artist/maker and viewer, she draws on the active body in both making and interpreting sculpture to unravel imaginative touch and proprioceptive sensation in sculptural practice. In this way, Harrison re-describes the body in sculpture through the skin, offering an alternative way of thinking about the body beyond a binary tradition of inside and outside.

Susan’s Custom Creepy Dolls.

Have you ever sat down and thought to yourself:

“I wish I had a creepy Bette Davis doll from the film “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” and I wish I also had one of Joan Crawford to go with it.”?
– Goddamn, I know I have plenty of times.

I can’t even count the number of times that I’ve thought about getting myself a Two Headed Dead Baby Doll or a Cabbage Patch Doll with a smashed in face.
You probably feel the same right?
I thought so.
Well don’t you worry folks because Ol’ Uncle Al has found the exact kind of fucked up shit that you’ve no doubt been too shy to admit to wanting all of your life.

Yep, I know.
I could hardly contain my excitment too.
A lady called Susan made these.
She’s an ex-mortician and taxidermist and therefore: My kind of person and get this, she actually has made a Cabbage Patch Doll with a smashed in face!

To see that and all of her other corpse cool creations, visit:

Behind Celtic Park.

I’m offy fond of Graveyards these days.
I don’t know why.
I just like them.

So I went to the one behind Celtic Park in Parkhead.

Never been there before.
It’s a lovely place.
I took some pictures.

Anna was there too but she slept through most of it. 🙂

You tend to forget that place is there because of the Stadium.
Next time you’re passing,
Take a wee wander round the place.

A Telephant & Other Sculptures.

What it says on the tin.

Thought I’d share some pictures I found of cool sculptures.

Elephant made out of tellys:

A big Skull thing made out of tins & cans:

A Dog made out of…stuff:

A Wave made out of Records:

I don’t know who any of the artists are so let’s just pretend that it was me.

Artist: David Mach.

I was thinking about Art.

I was thinking how a lot of modern art today doesn’t do a lot for me.
I was thinking of some of the best things I’ve ever seen in Art Galleries.
Things with style…

I remembered once seeing a big 7 Foot tall Astronaut Sculpture made from coat hangers.
That was good.

So I googled it and found it easy!

David Mach!

And guess what!
He’s only went and made a big coat hanger Gorilla too!

You’re probably familiar with his work too.

His great website is HERE.
