Daily Poetry: toys for contemplation

Monday, 18 June 2012

Young children can find an overwhelming interest in the most everyday experiences, caught up in an intuitive appreciation for simple things such as their own reflection in a puddle. Daily Poetry by Ingrid Hulskamp, an MA Textile Futures student from Central Saint Martins, is a series of contemplative toys for adults, helping us to return to this child-like state and admire the often bypassed simple wonders of life.

Made from hand-blown glass and filled with colourful liquid, the vessels are designed to be moved around in your hands, creating plumes of colour as the objects are tilted.
