06. Boxing Trophies


Boxing Trophies is me reenacting my boxing lessons to misuse the same movements in my design process.

Within this research about memory and movement, I developed a set of ceramic trophies that are shaped by the boxing movement.

Through the deformation of the ceramic via the boxing movement, I question the place that control occupies in the creative process, and how a defeat, the crumbling of the ceramic under the hits, can become a victory underlined by the beauty of the created shapes.

To reinforce this point, the piece becomes the looser’s trophy, proclaiming the beauty of the defeat.
