We know that you have probably already put your Christmas decorations away, but we couldn’t help but share this artist’s work.
According to the artist’s website, “for Tazewell, life is a gumbo—rich with spice, madness included.” While artist Tazewell finds most of his inspiration in and around his Mississippi gulf coast home, some of his work is out of this world (literally! Tazewell designed the Auburn University flag that was left on the moon by fellow Auburn alumnus, astronaut Ken Mattingly.)
While he works in many media, some of Tazewell’s most popular works come from his clay nativity series. Double-fired with colorful glazes, these pieces are far from Christmas kitsch. The simple designs and crisp colors speak to Tazewell’s background in graphic design and advertising.
