Five star crockery

For inspiration for a Kladblok project Amsterdam-based designer Judith Montens looked into the rituals of collecting and the trophy collections of celebrities. The first two in the series of the Five Star Crockery collection refer to the rare insect collection of Johnny Depp and car collection of Jay Leno.

"(...) Through objects like the cabinet of curiosities, collecting was once a way to show your vision of the world. Over time, collecting has become more of an urge than a vision; nowadays it seems more a desire just to possess. (...). Like their collections, these objects are stripped of their function and become an art object or a trophy."
