Porcelain hand built vending machine, stocked with teeny toadstools and dotty miniature wood girls.

Porcelain, chunky slab built 'play' sculpture, a substantial and heavy piece. Painted decoration in cobalt oxide and finished in a speckled blue glaze, with matt white and matt black interior sections. Comes with 10 hand painted wooden contents - due to the shelf heights, this machine will only take objects under 4cm tall for the middle shelf and under 3.5/ 3 cm for the others - a special request can be made if you wish to buy different sets.

Machine size: Approximately 19.5cm high/ 15cm wide/ 5.5cm deep.

I studied architecture at university, and my favourite part was the model making - I loved using the equipment that showed you the light conditions in a space at different times of the day, and the photography that allowed you to shrink in size (if only in the mind) and wander the spaces you had made. I did occasionally use clay for models back then, but also often of white card, with outlined edges. So I think it might have been inevitable that all these years later my love of Japanese vending machines has inspired me to make some model versions in thick slabs of porcelain, that can be interacted with, by setting up moveable pieces. I wanted the finished pieces to look like hand drawn 2D quick sketches come to life - alive and a bit wonky.

Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing. You can also use these ceramic machines as tiny display cases for those other tiny treasures that never have a place to be appreciated.

PLEASE NOTE: Not for young children, as the small pieces could be swallowed.
Due to the weight, a courier service is required for delivery outside the UK.
