What is "Sustainable"

"Cyclic: Products that are made from compostable organic materials or from minerals which are continuously recycled in a closed loop."

"Designing for recyclability involves;

- making sure that the product can be disassembled easily;

- labeling of parts to indicate materials types used - usually by embossing to avoid contamination;

- ensuring that surface finishes and graphics or decoration do not irreversibly contaminate the materials."

Animism: "the belief that natural objects, naturalphenomena, and the universe itself possess souls."

The concept of my product

Animism is the worldview that non-human entities possess a spiritual essence, and the belief has always been related to Japanese culture. Visualizing the spirits of products through the pieces of dolls, it suggests us the importance of each product and gives a chance to rethink about the way we use our products.

"Agnė Kondrataitė is breaking barriers when it comes to bowls, straying from traditional kitchen classics. Her pieces are pleasantly personified; the collection includes fruit bowls with doll faces and feet, and mugs that sprout muscled arms." Reference: http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/ceramage-pottery
