Hello Stonehenge! Who takes the Pandorica takes the Universe. But bad news everyone. 'Cause guess who! Hah! Listen, you lot, you're all whizzing about. It's really very distracting. Could you all just stay still a minute because I. AM. TALKING! Now, the question of the hour is, who's got the Pandorica? Answer: I do. Next question: Who's coming to take it from me? Come on! Look at me! No plan, no back-up, no weapons worth a damn, oh, and something else. I don't have anything to lose. So if you're sitting up there in your silly little spaceship with all your silly little guns and you've got any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight, just remember who's standing in your way! Remember! Every black day I ever stopped you! And then! And then! Do the smart thing! Let somebody else try first.
"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I have this thing about objects that are made to look like one thing but function as another. Or quite simply put, I love a good trick of the eye. The illusion of BrettKerns ceramic sculptures are mind altering fun. If you’re going to mess with my head it’s OK to do it in this way. Now before you poise your fingers to type the obvious – yes, I realize that Koons has a similar thing going on. But Koons used stainless steel and Kerns’ is crafting these by hand from clay.
It’s his elaborate detailing – down to the well placed air valve – that makes it easy to pass off his pop art ceramics as actual toy inflatables. While he’s receiving lots of press right now, you can still grab one of these babies for your very own from his Etsy.
