These are two Chinese words, 发福, made into calligraphy pottery sculpture.  It is interesting how the 2 dimensional words is transformed into 3D with the expressive action of the brush strokes.

The words 发福 originally meant the blossoming of fortune, a blessing that can be related to 发财 the blossoming of money, as in KUNG HEI “FAT CHOI”.  Nowadays, the words 发福 refers to the putting on weight during the middle age.  A tease in disguise of a blessing.
