Porcelain sideshow

Because Paris isn't the only freaky Hilton.

Designer Katherine Morley has modelled a series of functional porcelain household items on famous sideshow “freaks,” including the Johnny Eck candlestick, the Curved Lady creamer, the Violet & Daisy Hilton salt and pepper shaker and the Schlitze sugar bowl. A tribute to the golden era of the circus - that magic mix of nostalgia and horror. The human oddities have an especially gruesome history in the face of what’s considered normal today.

This Frandom item was part of MADE’s Radiant Dark showcase of modern Canadian design.
