Brooklyn pop artist KAWS is taking over Yorkshire Sculpture Park this month, with his first ever museum exhibition in the UK. In homage, we thought we'd share a few of our favourite 'micro' sculptures.* Because, let's face it, we don't all have a space the size of a sculpture park!
1. Staying on a pop art theme, these Russian Dolls by London-based sculptor and illustrator, Georgia Sawers, would add an element of mischief to any room.
2. US-based Yenny Cocq's perfect bronze families are melting our hearts this month. The figures can either be loosely sat or permanently mounted on a pedestal or stone base to create one of a kind families.
3. 'Transcending' is a beautiful depiction of life passing by Australian sculptor Damian Harrison. Damian is currently based in Brighton in the UK.
4. Nicola Beattie's soapstone 'Green Tomato' would be a great addition to any fruit bowl.
5. 'Book Scull' is one of a series of scull-ptures (sorry!) by London-based artist Barnaby Sax. It's real, an ethically, hand sourced British Roe Deer skull. Treated, cleaned and coated with old antique book pages.
*Okay, we know, they're not THAT small. But they're quite small. 'Smallish sculptures' just didn't have the same ring to it...
