Remember those really frustrating laminated cardboard milk cartons from your childhood? The ones on which you had to pull out a cardboard spout that hardly ever worked or ended up tearing and creating a really irritating dribble when you poured? Well, you’ll look upon them in an altogether more fond light once you’ve seen them reincarnated by Hanne Rysgaard.
The Danish ceramics designer has given the now obsolete carton a makeover that transforms it from a boring everyday item into a beautiful porcelain object worthy of the most prized position on your sideboard or mantlepiece. The plastic version we use these days has also received the Rysgaard treatment – and wouldn’t the supermarket be a brighter place if your daily pint came in designs as pretty as these?
