My name is Ronit Baranga, and I am a sculptor. In the following series of unique artworks, I personified tableware with emerging human mouths and fingers. The blurred border between the living and the still in these ceramic works is intriguing. It is fascinating. It is daunting. These weird things make you think.

In this combination of the “still” and the “alive” joined as one, I try to change how we observe useful tableware. The useful, passive, tableware can now be perceived as a moving object, aware of itself and its surroundings – responding to it. It does not allow to be taken for granted, to be used. It decides on its own how to behave in the situation.

This is how I prefer to think about these interesting things. Metaphorically, of course. What about you..?
