Unbelievable Ceramic Sculptures That Look Like Wood

Believe it or not, these sculptures by Christopher David White are not made of wood. There are knots, twisting veins and even a mossy mildew to disguise the work. However, White uses only clay to create deceptively detailed ceramic sculptures that look impeccably like real wood. White explains, "I utilize trompe l’oeil as a stylistic choice to emphasize the concept that our understanding of the world is an illusion."
