Melted Teapots

Instead of shattering into a thousand fragments, artist Livia Marin’s ceramic works break by melting away.

My starting point was never to create melted ceramic pieces, rather, I began with an idea of ‘broken things’: how do we relate to everyday objects in an event of loss.

I arrived at ceramic objects since the very material nature of such objects hinges between an imminent fragility (they break) whilst at the same time they can last for centuries. I sought to make an object that could reside in an ambiguous area: broken yet complete, collapsing or just restored.

I badly want Livia Marin to collaborate with Don Moyer

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
