When it comes to ceramic art, it’s hard to catch us off guard. But Wyatt Little’s nostalgia-inducing ceramic objects do just that, adding a playful twist to what we’ve come to recognize as a traditional form of art-making. A ’90s child at heart, his creations include a basketball-shaped vase and a “computer planter.”
“I feel like everything I end up making in some way ties back to my past,” said the Texas-based ceramic artist in an interview with Analog Watch Co.’s blog. “I often find myself thinking about objects I loved growing up and try to give them new life and context.”
“I grew up in a very creativity focused household,” he went on to say. “My dad was always at a drafting board and my mom did a lot of drawing and glasswork. To me, art was just natural, and the more and more I worked at it the more it became an integral part of my life and my identity.”
