Weird and Wacky Design – Strange Vessels
As anyone who reads this blog knows by now, I like unusually designed objects – preferably made from unusual media. So I was intrigued to discover these beer cans made from china! These exquisite Chinese porcelain vessels – have even been crushed to resemble aluminium beer cans. But who in their right mind would want to throw these away (though you could recycle the porcelain). Made by artist Lei Xue, these cans are actually teacups!
This Celtic skull vessel is rather unusual. Adorned with Celtic knot work, the top of the skull comes off and there is an inner compartment which you can fill ….with whatever. I wonder where this idea came from? Did the Celts drink from real skulls? From here
There’s a gallery of breathtaking glass vessels here. A wonderful glass collection from Kentucky artists. this one is by artist Ken quite transfixed me. It looks like a strange exotic conjuring trick, full of esoteric magic. I would never get tired of gazing upon it.
