Shrinking jugs by Dave Hakkens

Filed under: Art by Branko Collin @ 9:11 pm

Artist and inventor Dave Hakkens was fascinated by the fact that porcelain shrinks when you bake it. He used that notion to create a series of jugs where each jug formed the basis of a cast for the next one.

Starting out with a 5 litre jug he ended up with 14 jugs, of which the smallest has a volume of 10 millilitres. The jugs are for sale.
