2010, painted stoneware (industrial forms), [6x] 3 x 25 x 25 cm

The use of the Bolesławiec Ceramics stamp enhances the value of the hand-decorated wares. The stamp changes its function and becomes a decorative element. The interference in each of the elements adds to its meaning.

2010 porcelain (industrial forms), 11 x 8 x 13 cm

A production flaw caused the handle to be partly disconnected from the main part. However, the mug does not end up in the factory’s rejects bin. Instead, it is put on the shelf and becomes a container-cum-hanger.

Taboo

2010
Photo and stylization: Justyna Fedec
Concept and stylization: Luhuu!
Concept of porcelain figurines: Karina Marusinska

Porcelain figurines as decorative objects are normally displayed in the most representative places of an interior. The traditionally dignified poses are replaced by embarrassing, very personal gestures (picking the nose, depilating armpits, bikini, adjusting underwear, putting on stockings, squeezing the spots, etc). The figurines look like frozen people, caught in the act of doing something intimate. Will you still keep them on the main shelf in your living room? The project is a reference to rococo figurines that were closely connected with nature. It was also the period when moral standards were relaxed.

In the final version of the project, the figurines will be made from porcelain.

2009, porcelain (industrial forms), rubber

They blend the high with the low, the noble with the common, the solid with the fragile. Thanks to the rubber suckers or appropriate fixing, the porcelain jug handles take on lots of new functions. For instance, when attached to a disposable object, they make it reusable.

2009, porcelain, [4x] 12 x 7 x 7 cm
Producer: Meble VOX

This series of porcelain vessels is inspired by the structure of handicrafts. The mugs are very simple in form, which immediately draws our attention to the texture inside them, emphasized by the subtle play of light and shade. This decorative element, imitating natural materials (paper, wicker, wood, linen) at the same time improves the grip and adds tactile sensations.

Dog with the nodding head

2009, porcelain, metal, string

Such toys were a hit of the 1970’s and 80’s here, an almost obligatory interior element in every Fiat 126, Polonez or Syrena. Having gone to the dogs once, we are now back with a new unveiling of the old mascot.

2008, porcelain, gold, 10 x 18 x 18 cm, 7 x 14 x 14 cm

Action tames the material, i.e. porcelain. It means experiencing it sensually and physically. Working on a mass-produced item leads to creating a unique, individualised object. The tooth marks left on the brim of the vessel are also a play in which the viewer’s senses are engaged, a game of knowledge/ignorance of ceramic production and the properties of porcelain. Can you really bite such a hard substance? One just can’t help a funny association – how delicious the food must be if the dishes left on the table are not only emptied, but also partly ‘eaten’...

O!wady

2008, porcelain (industrial forms)

'Fly' (Polish: muszka; a fly – an insect) – name of technological fault in form of pointed tinge on glaze, which qualifies the product to the lower class or eliminates it from the production stage. By this way a big amount of products go to waste. According to the rule of the recycling I use products with faults (Polish: WADY) and transform technological 'flies' into excellent insects (Polish: OWADY).
