ceramic tableware with mouths by ronit baranga

‘handled with care’ – an exhibition curated by designboom – first saw the anthropomorphic work of israeli sculptor ronit baranga back in 2007, with her latest ceramic works now being shown as part of the ‘kama sex and design’ exhibition presented by the triennale design museum in milan, italy until the 10th of march, 2013. baranga’s work, which designboom covered earlier here, is characterised by a smattering of human body parts seamlessly integrated into recognizable crockery pieces – each one imbuing a distinctive personality through these acute interventions. through the voice of sculpture the work capitalizes on and celebrates the sensual nature of the body, particularly fingers and mouths, reminding us of the potent expressiveness of the human form.
