porcelain with binder, engobe, glaze, metal and glass lid



Colours can sooth, embrace, cheer you up, bring sadness, anxiety, and even pain. I explored my personal associations between colours and shapes/structure. As a result, I created unpleasantly coloured product archetypes which project the feelings invoked by bright colours into physical form. The cute embryotic shape of the objects calls for holding them in one’s hand while the sharp thorns dig into one’s skin. Placing the objects under the glass lids amplifies the feeling of danger and toxicity.

Each object is a unique hand-made item made of my own compound of porcelain and reedmace fibres (Typha Iatifolia). To get the slick and smooth surface, I apply 3-4 layers of engobe.  E. A.
