Love Potion by Mark Sturkenboom

About

Love Potion by Mark Sturkenboom Size: 40 x 40 x 20 cm, approximate 6 kg Material: mouth blown glass, 18-karat goldplated brass, cut and polished glass. Edition: No. 1 / 25 unique pieces. Love potion is a series of mouth blown and handcrafted glass bottles that hold an elixir based on pheromones and (animal) instinct. The bottles visualize the art of craving and waiting, as they stand on the verge of eruption. 'Romantic timepieces' as Sturkenboom calls them. For this collection Sturkenboom worked closely together with the glass blowers and glass cutting artisans from the GlassFactory in Boda, Sweden. Mark Sturkenboom (Driebergen, 1983) is an artist that graduated with honors in 2012 at Artez Academy for the Arts in Arnhem/Netherlands. Since 2012 he works as a conceptual product designer/artist in his atelier in Utrecht. His work balances between art and design, he stretches the boundaries between art and design. He offers new viewpoints and rituals to deal with life. ‘My focus lies not on the appearance of things, but on what I call the deeper layers in the relation between an object and its owner. ‘I try to call forward a myriad of associations and stimulate our thinking about what counts to us in our lives. I examine the meaning of objects and products and set them free from their conventional and initial use.’ Sturkenboom reinterpretates products that are often intertwined with the themes love, time or has an inclination with a collective value perception. Engaging his work, you probably will need to start making ‘moral’ decisions. For instance his Ark, table clock, urn or vase are not just functional or only good looking. In their presence and while handling them they invite you to think about time, love passed or the possibility to free yourself from the burden of your possessions by destroying them. His work is exhibited and part of private collections worldwide, from New York to Shanghai, from Tokio to Amsterdam.
