French artist Juliette Clovis produces hybrid works that merge nature, history, and myth with the female form, covering simple porcelain busts in wildlife, flora, and spikes. Her additions are either painted on or applied to mask the face, obscuring features like abnormal growths. These ambiguous females question the power that is split between humans and nature, toeing a line between being gentle and unnerving. You can see more images of Clovis’ porcelain three-dimensional forms on her Instagram and website. (via Artist a Day)
