Amazing ‘Wood Like’ Sculptures by Christopher David That Are Actually Not Made From Wood

Christopher David White is an American artist that creates hyperrealistic sculptures that explore themes of growth and decay. Many of his sculptures are made from ceramic, further brought to life with acrylic paint. In his artist statement, White explains:

With nature undergoing a perpetual transformation, everything derived from nature is subject to the same repetitive cycle of growth and decay—of life and death. Change is a constant reminder that permanence is the ultimate illusion. It is through the creation of hyper-realistic sculpture that I explore the relationship between nature, man, and the phenomenon of impermanence. I seek to expose the beauty that often results from decay while, at the same time, making my viewer question their own perception of the world around them.

This artist makes you admire his artworks twice by creating an illusion of a completely different material so you always have to go back and check them one more time. White’s sculptures are handmade from clay and rendered with strong attention to detail, resulting in gorgeous ceramic artworks that look like petrified wood.
