Im[practical] is a series of ceramic pieces referencing functional objects which invites viewers to question the nature and the relevance of divides such as art/craft, or traditional/contemporary. By approaching functionality, materiality and aesthetics in a playful way, the artist leads viewers to question the validity of these dichotomies and the notion of hierarchy.
