Magdalene Gluszek‘s sculptures…

“We live in a surreal world constructed by mass media and popular culture that takes us constantly further from our natural environment. Our preoccupation with self-presentation and display is a visual example of one of the many ways we embrace artificiality. Despite this façade, our emotional actions are tied to basic animalistic impulses […] I use animal features and mannerisms blended with those of humans to create hybrid forms, which illustrate this psychological state. Beneath the fake eyelashes, wigs and sparkles we are just animals playing dress-up.”

Shark Attack Porcelain Mug:

“The first few sips from this innocent looking porcelain mug are pretty tame, but as you continue drinking things get a lot more exciting. What’s that lurking in the murky depths of your morning coffee? HOLY CRAP, IT’S A SHARK! Yep, the bottom of this 3-1/4″ tall, porcelain mug features the imposing head of a great white shark lunging up at you. A classic gag that’s both funny and disconcerting.”
