Maja Padrov’s recent work is about exploring sculptural possibilities of teapots and other spouted pouring vessels. Their function is sometimes emphasized and sometimes concealed, aiming for intuitive connections of the elements and overall visual balance of the finished piece. The inspiration for these pieces came from different everyday objects. Padrov is interested in the metaphor for containment and also the possibility of function that ‘might follow the form’.
