Vintage porcelain hand-painted with ants by LAPHILIE

“LA PHILIE – that’s me, Evelyn Bracklow. LA PHILIE is art and design and the love for extraordinary and elaborate products.
The first line of LA PHILIE, named Chitins Gloss, entails vintage porcelain, hand-painted with ants. The idea for this work resulted from pure chance, when the sight of a carelessly placed plate – by then wandered by ants – fascinated me so much that I felt the urge to simply conserve this image.
Fear, disgust, fascination and admiration: This very interplay of feelings constitutes the charm of the work. Furthermore, to me, the ants symbolize all the stories that any formerly discarded piece of porcelain carries with it. Where one once dined and drank, today ants bustle in ever new formations, every single one applied with a great love for detail.”

    They look so realistic! But I bet it would be difficult to drink from that cup.
