Check out these wonderfully twisted sculptures by Canadian artist Shary Boyle

Nightmare-inducing ceramics are the best ceramics.

I've seen some extraordinarily bizarre, thought-provoking art in my time, but I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like the delicate (and terrifying) sculpture work of award-winning artist Shary Boyle. The multi-talented Canadian has worked across just about every medium available to an artist, including creating live projections for acts like Peaches and Feist, but her sculpting work really is something to behold. While it may appear as if her figurines were created with the sole intention of haunting your dreams for eternity; Boyle explores powerful themes in her work; including gender and class equality issues and exploration of the human figure. Take a look at some of Boyle's best, most confronting work below and imagine how these sculptures might look sitting in an antique cabinet amongst your mum's fine china.
