"Heartpot" — Maria Volokhova

21milan-viladas-custom1

The Ukraine-born, Berlin-based artist exhibited her strange and beautiful porcelain creations, among them the piece above — a teapot that sprouts human legs — at the "Poetry Happens" exhibition in Ventura Lambrate, part of Milan's Design Week last month.

Wrote Pilar Viladas in Sunday's New York Times, "The teapot, with its heart shape, aorta-like handles and charmingly incongruous human legs, typifies Ms. Volokhova's preoccupation with making things that are neither 'functional' nor 'art,' and with exploring our perceptions of the human body."
