Delightfully Twisted Porcelain Sculptures

Those who choose to work in porcelain are generally trying to preserve classical techniques, add an antiquated twist to their ultra-modern work or, in the case of Maria Rubinke, trying to create a juxtaposition between what is acceptable now in the world of art and the simpler, more innocent forms of the past.

Maria's sculptures are lightheartedly morbid, featuring unfortunate kids with cute faces struggling through all sorts of strange maladies, from splitting headaches to what can only be called "kettle ear":

The characters in Maria's sculptures would get along well with Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies, they could share woeful tales about their various maladies and misfortunes!
