The wine glass series Imperfections deals with the perfectionism of mass production and criticises its sorting mechanisms. In western industries the smallest flaw on the surface of an object leads to its devaluation and a completely functional product gets thrown away. Imperfections takes mistakes as an inspiration, and where normally a tiny glass bubble leads to production waste, this work uses them as basis of a beautiful design. The wine glass series shows the absurdity with which we sort out products. At the same time it deals with errors and their aesthetics, it messes playfully with the viewer’s sense of error-tolerance.
