Sego Lilly

It’s like an image from a dream: peeing into the giant blossom of a sego lilly. But for those on the cutting edge of interior design, or who get invited to swanky parties, this is one dream that can come true. Thanks to the art of Clark Sorensen.

Clark’s sculptures are fully-functional porcelain plumbing fixtures, and they are beautiful. He is a Salt Lake City native and grad of the University of Utah’s sculpture program. Clark has lived all over the world, trying his hand at everything in the arts from costume design to animation.

For the past 5 years, he has focused on sculpture, more precisely, urinals with a few sinks thrown in here and there (my fav is the poppy sink, in case you need ideas for Christmas gifts). I love the technical part of his work, where he has to think about things like drain and flush valve connectors, wall access and general plumbing. Who said being right-brained meant you weren’t mechanical?

World According to Bush Urinal

Clark gets a little bit political, too. One sculpture is a line graphs showing the stock market being flushed away. He also invites gentlemen to piss on “the world according to Bush.”

Other more “traditional” urinals (ha ha, did I say that) consist of sea shells, orchids, tulips, morning glory, calla lillies and other flowers. They are beautiful. It makes me smile that someone would take the time to sculpt a urinal. What can I say? I like. I really do.
