Cups, vases and objects:
“I was inspired by the design of mass produced packaging
that I found in my daily surroundings”
In her earlier work you can see her fascination for certain mass produced packaging. These packaging are part of our daily surroundings and are meant to protect the goods and to be thrown away after their use.
She started collecting packaging with geometric paterns and fascinating shapes that inspired her. Most of them were used for packaging cheese, meat, chocolates or cookies. Also other plastick packages containing lemon juice or the paper package for her computer cartridge.
She saw a hidden beauty in these packaging and they inspired her to create new ceramic works. This way she altered these seemingly worthless plastic objects into new, unique and long lasting ceramic objects. She created a new existence and a new function for these packaging and found a way to reveal and show their beauty.
The vase ‘Vase’ has won her a prize in the ’56th Premio Faenza’, Italy.
For this vase she used a plastic tray that came with a box of chocolates.
