Imaginary drinks : the memories of tastes. 2016-2018

Imaginary drinks is a project intended to translate human senses (smell, taste) into vision (sight) through the medium of ceramics. It is an entertaining collection of ceramics, the idea of which stems from the childhood of designer Ahryun Lee and how she builds up memories and perception around taste.

The extraordinary surface and color of each object is reminiscent of a certain flavor or taste. This imaginative, sensually provocative ceramic object leads the viewer to a Synesthesia experience where the impression of the object arouses other senses. Each piece is a one-off design, unique and purely handmade.

Imaginary drinks : the memories of tastes porcelain, coloured slip, slip-casting, slip trailing for texture, 1260c oxidation firing, 2015 The concept of my design stems from the memories of my childhood and the first eating activity how we build up memories and perception about the taste. From my personal experience the most unforgettable memory is built on the touching experience. For example, when we were sucking mother's breast at the first time it is the starting point of recognition of tasty world. Touching sensibility is the beginning idea to develop this project.

Tactile sensation is a perception of understanding the things around us and it creates visceral reaction. The surface image of bottles is reminiscent of liquid inside and brings imagination for the user to think about what is inside. These extraordinary bottles are quite fun but also it brings curiosity about the object between function and non-function. This artistic object is situated beyond functionality and suggests the potential how the ordinary object can be evolved.
