(“broken vessel” in Hebrew) is a project that started as an emotional and
expressive creation, of over 100 “one of a kind” objects, and led to a new,
different and intriguing industrialized product.
The project started as morphological research, born from the random, unpredictable act of a glass breaking. It was all about embracing a new
working method: examining different types of broken mugs, cups and glasses, and either completing them using different materials or forming a new and unexpected hybrid from them. It was also about giving new “life” and meaning to unwanted “expired” products- during the research I have collected broken cups, mugs and glasses that were meant to be thrown away, and used them as raw
material for the research.
The research was a long and devoted process, in which I have created more than 100 different new variations of cups, each challenges the
definition of a "cup" or a "glass", interprets “container” in a new way, and offers a new inspiration for a bizarre morphologic or
functional starting point.
Eventually, I examined the different outcomes, from an industrial point of view: The first phase was emotional, expressive and spontaneous; But
can this kind of creation lead to new ways of design thinking?
the 100 hybrids I have created, I could see an industrial potential in several.
I then chose one as a study case and developed it into a series of its own.
"DEUX" is a series of two-sided glasses, each side is used for a different purpose. It could be used for 2 different types of wine,
or even for wine on one side, and a snack on the other.
“SHEVERKLI” and “DEUX” are two sides of the same coin; starting as a random and immediate artistic act, taking the advantages of such an act and harnessing it for the purpose of creating a new and different industrial product.
