Ceramic, glaze, 2021-2022

Branches and pieces of plastic toys pretend to be a magic wand. Although in fact, branches and pieces of plastic are ceramics. Ceramics that pretend to be a something else .
I created copies of sticks from the forests closest to the city. Copies are not improved, but deliberately embellished with replicas of plastic toys.
This is a kind of nostalgia for the natural landscape, in a world where the artificially created inevitably displaces the natural. Even desperately longing for everything natural, people strive to complement and decorate authentic textures and materials. It seems to me ironic and at the same time funny to think about the confrontation of the changeable aesthetic and natural principles in the object.
