POPCORN the Arabia Art Department edition 2017

I’m always trying to find new ways to use materials as a means for expressing emotions. In my work, popcorn is transformed from a popular snack food into a refined ornament. You enjoy it across the entire gamut of culture – from comedy to horror.

Popcorn

Series of Popcorn Bowls (2006 – 2014): a study of porcelain and experimental material use. I made the first Popcorn bowls while still studying. The ceramic studio at Arabia occasionally filled with the smell of popcorn as I used the common kitchen’s microwave to pop up my material. I heard afterwards from other students that they thought I had gone mad – making real popcorn transformed into porcelain.
