Egg Cup Ricky Swallow | Thing Quaterly Issue 29
Issue 29 is a porcelain egg cup by LA-based artist Ricky Swallow. It was conceived alongside Swallow's SHAKER BELL, a limited edition project for THE THING. The starting point for both objects was the shaker peg, originally designed by Shakers to adhere to their guiding principals of simplicity, utility, and honesty. As in all of his work, Swallow hand-constructed the original forms out of ordinary materials - cardboard, tape, and glue, in addition to the wooden pegs which were added to the objects as intuitive handles.
The object relates to Swallow's recent sculptures in bronze, which draw on the intimate scale and materiality of domestic forms.
