Plugged by Richard Yasmine
Updated: Jan 19, 2020
Plugged is a series of carafe, jugs, soliflore and table lamps made of solid brushed brass and a very thin hand blown borosilicate glass mixed together to form one dramatically enchanting unit.
The metamorphosed glass jug imitates the shape of the brass rod and covers half of this element in a sensational way.
The main purpose is a firm base to maintain the stability of the entire design but definitely with a message behind; “protect yourself”, safe sex is absolutely essential to avoid unwanted consequences.
A very neat contrast between the materials used / heavy, transparent / dense, weak / strong reflects the male’s and female‘s organs represented as a daily useful object.
