Erika Sanada is a Japanese sculptor currently based in the USA. She creates ceramic creatures that surprise by their soft colors and lines and unsettling undertones. "My work reflects the weird and the creepy. I am fascinated with the dark side," she wrote on her website.

"In my current body of work, “Odd Things,” I’m using the ceramic medium to create my bizarre creatures. My animals have extra body parts such as multiple arms, legs, teeth, and ears. Clay allows me to create what’s in my head. A troubled childhood and constant “life” anxieties are all expressed in the series.”

These works can be best described as disturbing beauty. Take a look at some of the works below to understand why.

These sculptures are made with great sense of detail and are well executed. This artist is very good at her craft, yet I wouldn't buy any of sculptures. I find them disturbing.
