RatxChicks Ceramics / Butter Dish / Taxi Rabbit

$ 450.00

Take a taxi in New York with this delightful rabbit, a toasted slice of sourdough and some French butter, using this whimsical ceramic butter dish. Growing up in South Korea, Michelle didn't know much about butter and she became interested in how prominently it is featured in especially French food. What a fun conversation piece for your table!

Whether it's pigeons paired with toothbrushes or poodles and bananas, rabbits and taxis, artist Michelle Im's ceramics seek refuge in humor and relish in the absurdities of everyday life.

Michelle often pairs motifs that are deliberately out of sync to capture a sense of approachable absurdity. "I’m interested in how ideas travel over time and geography. Researching ceramic history has always been a source of inspiration. I use a Maiolica painting technique in my work which responds to the earthenware traditions of Italian Maiolica and Dutch Delftware that arose out of the global demand for Chinese blue and white porcelain," she told us.
