Porcelain + Wood Axe (above): Colab between Aleksandra Pollner + Emmett Smith
Through an accidental chain of events, a broken porcelain Axe arm, led a collaboration between a wooden boat maker and a ceramicist. The decontextualized axe, just as its collaborators, is a meeting point between function and art or dysfunction and their own concepts and experiences of the original object.
Casts of a granite rock in porcelain. This is a smaller part of a bigger casting project, currently in process, of boulders as bowls and lamps. The project inspired by the sexy textures of the rock and by a desire to bring its form function and a beautiful graphic textural element to our interior living.
