My objective in the DIOSCURI objects was to use an iconic, archetypal shape derived from the Panathenaic amphoras and Greek Lebes Gamikos pottery which has its mystical and cultural associations. By adding rough ebony handles with medals I wanted to create from these archetypal shapes a trophy cup emptied of over-packed culture for two Ancient Greek heroic brothers – almost the graetest heroes the brothers Dioscuri. I tried to create artificially a misinterpretation of the cultural associations of trophy cups, pushing them a little towards bizarre and naive positions and nuances.
