Israeli artist Orly Montag has a knack for creating strange and intriguing characters using exceptional techniques and materials such as porcelain, aerated concrete bricks and terracotta. Her website is a treasure chest of unique sculptures. She sometimes posts progress photos on her Facebook page, so make sure to check that out too.
Montag graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2010 with a degree in Ceramic Design. The foundation of her work starts with the free hand carving of figures and objects, which are then duplicated in porcelain casting. In this duplication/ cloning act, the artist tries to remove the initial halo of the unique object and to examine the change of it one of a kind individual identity. Through manipulations and the use of these objects as building blocks, a new creation evolves.
