London-based artist and sculptor Livia Marin’s melted porcelain series, Nomad Patterns, looks like a first-class exercise in Photoshop. In reality, these intriguing sculptures are physical pieces that appear to be melting into puddles. What’s really special, though, is that the intricate decorations flow into the puddles as well. In her own words, Marin describes the concept behind this superb series: “In a culture increasingly dominated by habits of consuming and discarding, Nomad Patterns interrogates the boundaries between the attention given to precious or elite artifacts and the lack of thought afforded to the mass production of utilitarian objects.”
