Polish-born Cecula has been working in porcelain since 1974, two years before he moved to the United States. Set I is part of his Scatology series, challenging the distinction between sculpture and industrial design. While modern culture associates pure porcelain with functional fixtures, Cecula removes stainless steel and porcelain from that context of mass production to create elegantly beautiful and provocative sculptures.
