Nature's call

        Orchid imagery comes in many shapes and forms..they give such an inspiration to many people, in history,  human culture and imagination.

While browsing the internet, I've just stumbled upon this..Urinals in shape of orchids.! Untill then, I've  never imagined that this thing exist..or somebody would do this kind of stuff..very interesting really..So creative and ironically unique, a 'flower' for us to pee inside..it is also in fact a sculpture, a work of art..

       Clark Sorensen is an artist from San Francisco that made this urinals such a creation. An artwork for your peeing pleasure..! Kinda funny don't you think ? Depicting orchids such as Paphs and Cattleya, these are one of a kind thing that one is likely to ever see..


       Imej-imej orkid terdapat di mana.mana dalam berbagai rupa dan bentuk..Orkid memberi inspirasi kepada ramai orang dalam sejarah kebudayaan manusia dan imaginasi..

       Ketika sedang 'surf' internet, terserempak pula dengan benda ini, Mangkuk buang air kecil (saya tak pasti istilahnya dalam bahasa Melayu) berbentuk bunga orkid.! Tak terfikir pula saya yang benda sebegini wujud atau ada orang yang hendak membuatnya..tetapi sungguh menarik, kreatif dan unik. Sekuntum bunga untuk kita buang air kecil di dalamnya !..Ia juga sebenarnya ialah sejenis arca, hasil karya seni yang berbentuk 3 dimensi..lebih tepat lagi ianya sebuah arca berfungsi..

      Clark Sorensen, seorang pengarca dari San Francisco merupakan perekanya. Beliau menjadikan mangkuk ini satu ciptaan yang tersendiri..Sebuah arca untuk anda buang air kecil..! rasa nak ketawa pun ada..Orkid yang dijadikan sumber ilham ialah Cattleya dan Paphiopedilum..Salah satu hasil seni yang julung-julung kali dapat kita lihat..



 Certainly Clark Sorensen has created some of the most unique urinals..! 
This one was based on cattleya blossom..

Each urinals was hand crafted using the same porcelain material as the normal ones..
Also based on cattleya.


 They are fully functional ! This is Paphiopedilum micranthum shaped urinal..


 Clark has been perfecting his technique to produce this kind of functional sculpture..
I think this is Paphiopedilum barbatum or callosum..

 You couldn't get this at the nearest hardware or bathroom equipment store..
Another cattleya shaped one.


 He's using brilliant colour just like the orchids itself..Well.. you can pee while looking at pretty flower..This is Paphiopedilum armeniacum..


I don't know if I want to pee on this..kind of funny and amazed at the same time..
I think they are the most beautiful urinals ever..! 
This one must be Paphiopedilum Maudiae Alba


       Mr. Sorenson don't just made orchid shaped urinals but other flowers shape too..You can visit his website..and here's another one.
