Reproducing nature takes a big deal of observation and understanding of shapes, colors and textures. Lorraine Taylor and Nicky Smart are masters at it. They create realistic porcelain sculptures molded from real fruits.  The artists create and apply their own glazes, capturing the fruit’s texture, color and blemishes, just as nature intended.

“Our influences lie in trompe l’oeil and early still life paintings of fruits, which demonstrates the beauty of the organic forms along with the accuracy and detail required to represent the ”real thing.”
