Although Los Angeles-based artist Lily Clark incorporates stone, wood, and metal into her sculptures, she considers water her primary medium. One of her more recent works, “Dew Point,” explores the supple, plump shape of the life-giving liquid as it condenses and succumbs to gravity. A boxy sculpture with a wide but shallow depression, the superhydrophobic ceramic piece pushes individual droplets to the surface seemingly from nowhere. Each ultimately tumbles down into a slender slit in the middle of the form, before returning to repeat the cycle.

Head to Clark’s site and Instagram to explore more of her water-centric works.
