The idea for this work resulted from pure chance, when the sight of a carelessly placed plate - by then wandered by ants - fascinated me so much that I felt the urge to simply conserve this image.
Fear, disgust, fascination and admiration: This very interplay of feelings constitutes the charm of the work. Furthermore, to me, the ants symbolize all the stories that any formerly discarded piece of porcelain carries with it. Where one once dined and drank, today ants bustle in ever new formations, every single one applied with a great love for detail.

LA PHILIE by the german artist Evelyn Bracklow is art and design and the love for extraordinary and elaborate products. The first line of LA PHILIE, named Chitins Gloss, entails vintage porcelain, hand-painted with ants. Pieces are designed for interaction and have the ability to interrupt everyday life for a moment. Some people are surprised, others disgusted, others are attracted and fascinated by the realness of the ants.
Evelyn Bracklow * 1986, works and lives in Dortmund, Germany
Her work has been featured in numerous publications and shown at international shows.
