Aura Latva-Somppi / Marathon Mug VII
Medium / materials: glazed ceramics and porcelain
Dimensions: 18 x 19 x 5 cm
The Marathon Mug was born in Kyoto, the cradle of pedantically traditional handmade ceramics. This work is a giggly protest against the black-and-white distinction between crafts, design and art. Its shape was inspired by the wrist bottle worn by runners. The combination of this kind of trendy water bottle with traditional porcelain unites two worlds; sexy extreme sports and everyday weekday mornings. Marathon Mug turns its users into champions, running races of their own kind.
