MONA ABUSAMRA
2020

Icebreaker is a collection of 3 extraordinary porcelain pieces that are used as dinnerware and cutlery. Regular dinnerware expects certain stiff behaviour that became dull and impersonal. Dinning out should be a different event, it should offer an unusual atmosphere with amazing food.
I developed shapes in 3D software, 3D printed, then used them for making plaster moulds and slip cast in porcelain. The software modelling gave me the precision and hand modelling the uniqueness in every shape.
The inspiration for the shapes comes from the sea world and creatures that are hiding far below the surfaces we see.
