Earthly Beauty

For my final work I made a miniature scene in clay. The scene depicts an alien admiring the beauty of our planet. Is he there as an enemy to research the complexities and weaknesses of the human body, or is he perhaps just a fan attempting to find motivation along his fitness journey?

 

Who knows. What I do know is that the pieces in my work were constructed as the result of a long and strenuous process of trial and error. I was inspired by two things finns pride themselves on; the beautiful nature and the comfort in nudity. The white glaze used on the centerpiece was made by my classmates and myself - under the leadership of our dear ceramics teacher Eva of course.
