Kettles and tea cups are standard features in most homes, and this melted ceramic art is a surrealist take on those regular, everyday items.
Livia Marin has taken the structure of dainty tea kettles and cups and have deconstructed their usual look. Liquifying the outside of the objects has made some pieces nearly unrecognizable, except for the handle or spout. The most interesting feature of this art is how the patterns on the melted pieces have still remained intact. The intricate fine china designs of the patterns are the perfect representation of what they used to be, all the while keeping true to the traditional designs of kettles and tea cups.
This melted ceramic art is the perfect example of how regular objects can be easily altered, and how a simple addition can evoke the feelings of the original.
