Porcelain Sculptures by Nuala O’Donovan

Irish artist Nuala O’Donovan sculpts hand-built porcelain that resemble fractal patterns found in nature.

"My work combines regular pattern with the characteristics of irregular patterns and forms from nature."

"Each element of the pattern is individually made, the form is constructed slowly over a period of weeks or months. The finished forms are a result of an intuitive response to the direction that the pattern takes as well as the irregularity in the handmade elements of the pattern."

"I have used the characteristics of irregular/fractal patterns in nature as a system of constraints or guidelines when making decisions about the forms: The patterns are regularly irregular."

"The patterns and form are self-similar. The pattern records a response to random events during the making process. The result of using the characteristics of fractal geometry in making decisions regarding the form of the sculptural pieces, is that the form is resolved but retains a sense of potential change."
