This piece is part of the ‘Dangerous, Not Dainty’ Series, created during a residency at the Worcester Center for Crafts.
In some of Momoko Schafer’s recent work, she has designed domestic objects that provoke conversations. In the series displayed, Momoko includes objects that have interactive elements. Designing objects that invite the audience to have tactile engagement is on of her particular interest. She uses texture and form to pull at the audiences’ familiarity with previous encounters. Her use of figures also invites the audience to start forming a personal relationship with these objects. The titles offer a fresh though, seemingly separate from the neat and elegant forms.
