Crumpled ceramic cups, By Rob Brandt (Netherlands) 1975
Inspired by a crumpled plastic cup, this white porcelain version can be used for coffee, dessert, or condiments.
The cups are made by the designer himself, and not manufactured industrially, which makes each cup unique.

bird12.jpg bird3.jpg

Marcelle Robbins’s art explores memory through the notion of collecting and collections. She has used birds as objects to evoke the feeling of nostalgia.
Birds obviously have great significance for the artist; they represent her suburban upbringing, being blessed with a highly decorated living room and a backyard full of native flora and fauna.
The bird objects are replicas of flying ceramic birds cast from the originals, once owned by Marcelle’s grandmother, that were a popular domestic interior motif of the 1950s/60s. However they are now represented in white plaster, as if the distant memory of growing up in the suburbs flocks around her.

Available now at BOTI.
