Inspired by Méret Oppenheim's "Object ", porcelain and fur are joined together to express the contrast between hardness and softness: on the top of the matt porcelain jar, there is a furry ball for stroking. When opening the cuddly jar, a sensual feeling arises. It transforms the handling quietly, softly, and affectionately.
The porcelain itself is cold and has nothing to do with a warm body surrounded by skin and hair. Nevertheless, it becomes addicted to touching the furry products, gently stroking them and playing with them.
