Stephen Friedman Gallery in London is showing work by Scottish artist David Shrigley.

The front of the gallery has an installation of ceramic sculptures representing missiles. They are shaped just like bombs seen in cartoons, in their iconic, simplistic form.

The bombs are made out of ceramic with a glazed surface. The material takes the bombs out of their destructive context and gives them a fragile feel. Their shiny and simple forms make these objects alluring to the viewer still mindful of their original intended purpose.
