mexican designer rafa:el cacharro mucino’s ‘nosy nose’ gives personality to an inanimate and daily-used product. these ceramic, handmade mugs investigate how one key element is able to transform a common object. covered by a high temperature glaze and decorated with eye and gun motifs, the main feature of the piece is a human nose. besides being a point of air entry into the body, it balances the face and helps to characterize a person.  the collection comes in three different styles, because having only one nose in life could be boring.
