Ceramic Babies

Ceramist Shigeki Hayashi latest work entitled The Entertainment Ceramics 2 explores the Japanese obsession with youth, technology, and amusement. Two rows of infants sit facing each other with eyes closed, wearing spacesuits seemingly consumed by what appears to be a deep meditative state, or a sweet somber in mother's womb.
His work is startling, not necessarily in a disturbing way, its just visceral and reactionary. Great stuff!
