The Creepiest Tableware Ever?

RONIT BARANGA CREATED A STANDARD SET OF TABLEWARE CERAMICS WITH HUMAN MOUTHS, TEETH, TONGUES, AND FINGERS PROTRUDING FROM THE PLATE.

The Creepiest Tableware Ever

Ronit Baranga is a ceramic sculptor from Israel.

Just by peeking at her website you can see that none of her creations are normal: They’re creepy, crawly, and some will make your skin cringe—and her latest work is even better.

“Blurred Border Between Living & Still”

Hybrid Tea Set

Ronit created a standard set of tableware ceramics with human mouths, teeth, tongues, and fingers protruding from the plate.

It looks like some of the plates will try to crawl away or nip at you or your food if you tried eating off of them.

As cool as these are … I don’t think I could ever eat off of them!
“The useful, passive, tableware can now be perceived as an active object, aware of itself and its surroundings – responding to it. It does not allow to be taken for granted, to be used. It decides on its own how to behave in the situation.” -Ronit Baranga

Ronit Baranga asks you and us: “This is how I prefer to think about my plates and cups. Metaphorically, of course. What about you… ?”

I prefer to not think about my tableware at all. Tell us what you think!
