Clowning around

Containers are often very boring, purely functional objects. Tomas Kral has added a playful element to his new collection of jars.

It is not immediately obvious what the function is of Swiss designer Tomas Kral’s new ceramic series is. Is it a vase or is it a jar? For the bathroom or the living room? It doesn’t really matter because it adds a fun element to wherever you choose to place this object.

The Clown Nose series is inspired by the red nose clown, says Kral. The cork cover, which serves as a plug, is connected to the ceramic container with a coloured elastic.
