Self-Taught Ceramic Artist Creates ’90s-Inspired Sculptures

Wyatt Little’s ceramic art caters to the millennial aesthetic, in the best way possible. Drawing inspiration from the ’90s, he makes sculptures and vessels that look like caps, basketballs, trainers and other ordinary objects.

“I was living with a roommate who was doing ceramics in his garage and I had a bunch of concepts floating around in my head,” recalled the Texas-based artist. “He taught me the basics and I have been doing it for 8 years now. My style has evolved as I have learned more about my craft. I will have ideas for years and not know how to properly execute them. Then, someone within my community will give me some advice or I will learn a new technique and figure it out. Once I have a success like that, I will build off of it and apply that new technique to other pieces.”

The self-taught artist now sells his creations online and has gathered a small following on Instagram. “I love it when people are confused by my pieces at first glance,” he said on the Urban Outfitters blog. “Then once they figure it out, I hope they are delighted.”

We sure are delighted.
