to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

what to do with cups and saucers

We have guests staying over night and this is my 'guest soap dispenser' in our bathroom.

Boym Partners designed a collection called Salvation Ceramics.
This project attempts to give a new life to objects discarded by society. Mismatched ceramic pieces from thrift shops are assembled into sumptuous new objects. Each object is inevitably a one-of-a-kind. Over 50 pieces were presented in May 2000 at Vitra showroom, NYC. Since 2002 selected pieces from the collection are in production by Marcel Wanders' company Moooi.
The piece above is my version, made from ceramics from the fifties.
