maybe you have to see it in person but I am not getting this art. The real sculptors are the gals/guys who designed those Bundt(Tm) pans.

but it looks like she uses the pans + molds from inside of them
+ eye popping colorations...!!
i see a wave of spray painted thrift shop bundt pans ahead...

i have to agree, it's not really "design", it's merely a collection with some examples of what the original molds turned out, in colors.

But these remind me (only because they look like rubber or latex) of these amazing vases i saw at Maison-Objet earlier this month.


the designs are a bit crazy / outlandish -- and you don't really get the scope of them from photos -- but they are huge and entirely soft and rubbery jello-y jiggly... amazing! you can't help but want to keep touching the things.

well i think this is sort of hinting at a bigger debate. it reminds of me of the dadaists and people wondering if found objects were art. does it really matter that the mold was pre-made?

i personally think this artist chose to do an interesting thing with yes, a pre-designed item. but molds are a common item (though not necessarily bundt pan molds) in design so i don't fault her for that. i think the piece is more about color and material, which play a big part in this.

to each his own, but i think we'll wind up fighting the dada fight if we get too deep into "this isn't design because the mold is pre-made"
