These banana peels are a conversation starter, a decorative object that get people around them talking and stopping.
About the Maker
Eleventeen Ceramics is created and produced by Denise Porter-Howland in Grey Lynn New Zealand. After studying fine arts in London and Auckland, ceramics became a natural progression from painting with the active choice to bring three dimensional pieces into manifestation.
The notion, “There is beauty in everything” prevails as cigarettes, ashtrays and fingers become shining pristine jewellery organisers - A banana skin or apple core double as an ornamental paper weight or book end, a fried egg evolving into a dish. Discarded and abandoned, out dated and forgotten, feelings of profound sadness are re-imagined into pieces of beauty and humour ... the viewer may be attracted to insert their own personal journey and values.
Each piece is handmade and therefore preciously unique as it will never be created the same again. Invitations are always open for special orders.
Dimensions: 18cm length x 11 cm height
