Rare Item is a collection of instant heirlooms, or, one-of-a-kind design objects unburdened by the expectation of function.
These objects—hand-cast and pigmented resin—reproduce, in material terms, the nostalgia and affection already present in inherited heirlooms. Their functionality varies, but in their simplest forms, they are alternatives to rock collecting, floral arrangements, or sculpture.
Instructions: look upon, stroke fondly, re-arrange, repeat.
