Another interesting find while searching for images. There’s a contemporary Chinese artist, Lei Xue, who’s making art out of handmade bone china. He’s taking ordinary objects and creating porcelain versions of them. Lately, he’s been making beer cans that are hand-painted and resemble Ming Dynasty vases.
The title of this piece is “Teetrinken.” It’s amazing how he’s captured the crumpled, flattened look of them.
These porcelain beer cans littered in the corner were for an exhibition in Germany. I imagine they’re heavier than they look.
