These urinals created by Clark Sorenson are definitely a work of art but I don’t know if I’d feel comfortable ‘relieving myself’ on a gigantic flower. Maybe it’s years of human conditioning, or maybe it’s because I’ve seen Little Shop Of Horrors too many times, I just don’t know. And even though they may look like strictly museum pieces, and have been on display in several galleries, they are fully working urinals that can be hooked up to your home’s plumbing.
All pieces are made of high fire porcelain and fired to cone 10 in an oxidation atmosphere. The urinals are made of the same material of commercial toilets and can be installed and used. Each has been hand built and is a one-of-a-kind work of art – these pieces are not molded or mass produced.
Certain pieces are available for sale on Clark’s website and range in price from $6,500 up to $9,500 depending on the complexity and detail of the flower.
