A prancing horse stands on the side of this small porcelain cup that resembles a disposable plastic cup.
Yukiko Kitahara is a Japanese artist based in Seville, Spain. This piece is part of Yukiko’s main collection ‘Usar y no tirar‘ (Use and do not throw away).
The pieces are designed to mimic single use items, like plastic cups, milk cartons and paper trays, to which she adds artistic and decorative elements, blending manmade and natural objects. The collection invites us to reflect on our use of disposable objects, and Yukiko hopes to inspire a change in consumer habits.
