Could hair be mass-grown? Or is mass a cosmic delusion that always snares at us through our ignorance and knowledge referring to material sources? The leading questions that has inspired a series of mugs. An object that is known from our daily life and a specific shape that is known from the IKEA. For my project I used a long lasting mould to be able to reproduce continuously and freely any time, with materials such as human hair and cosmetic wax that questions our relationship with raw materials. Replacing the porcelain with materials which availability is non forcible, furthermore highly depends on the human body, creates a new perspective how to look at the same object. Can you drink from it? Well, the question is rather if you would like to drink from it.
