Blind artist specialized in ceramics and masks made of everyday things

Ceramist and sculptor Howard Mallory had a gift for finding beauty in 
the commonplace.

"He started using found objects in his art in the late 1990s, after he 
became legally blind," said his wife, Lessie, of her husband's 
adjustment to glaucoma that was diagnosed in the mid-1970s. "He saw art 
in everything."

Most of his artworks with found objects were masks commemorating such 
African-Americans as Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman as well as more 
general African themes.

Was Van Gogh Color Blind?
But a Japanese medical scientist now contends that Vincent's unique 
color palette was literally a function of his vision---specifically, a 
kind of color blindness. According to this researcher, Van Gogh's 
unforgettable wheatfields and starry nights stick in our minds because 
they lack a color component most of us can see in nature.
