The patterns on the work is made from impressed clay on plaster molds–which were created from the antique molds I have collected. The collection of molds from unknown craftsman in the past, allows the possibility to combine works from different craftsmen in a single piece of work.
In this piece, I am making use of the antique molds beyond the patterns carved by the unknown craftsman.
Each piece of the clay in pastry shape has the potential of creating a new form when carefully arranged and combined. They were also combined to create a functional purpose, in this piece case- a holder of the lid, a structure to support the drinking tube.
This piece has a round base and will turn in many directions when interacted. Playing with the configuration of different functional parts of vessels- this piece has two spout and two drinking tube and they also act as handles of the vessel. The body of the vessel is shaped like a vase or bottle, with a narrow neck, flared rim and round body.
How it functions, lies in your imagination.
