The Torn Collection by Robert Siegel and Aaron Hawks is Imperfect

The Torn Collection is made up of lovely porcelain pieces for the kitchen and dining room except, of course, for the cracks, tears and other malformations they have. Purposefully created with these flaws, the Torn Collection appears to question the idea of accepted beauty and mass production expectations.

A collaboration project between ceramicist Robert Siegel and artist Aaron Hawks, the Torn Collection is comprised of everything from the table to the chandelier. A unique and limited edition set, each object has been mindfully crafted by hand, making each as different from the next as a family of snowflakes. It helps that they all boast their own tailor-made deformities. A tribute to all things imperfect, the designers write that it tears "the line between art and craft.” Stats for Malformed Dining Sets Trending: Older & Mild
