Porcelain Planters Depict Parks And (True) Recreation

Some artists choose to see life through rose-colored glasses. Then there are those who see gritty reality, and still try to make something pretty out of it. Take Tristan Zimmermann, a designer who created these bonsai planters (pretty) and incorporated the concept of what parks are really like (reality). The white porcelain pottery depicts disturbing scenes of what goes on after dark—two men having sex in a corner, a pervert flashing an unsuspecting lady. Then there are also the just-plain-sad scenarios of a man getting mugged or a lonely fellow who has lost his way. In a way, these pieces are a poignant metaphor—not even the youngest, most innocent sapling is immune to the dark realities of the world. Or they’re just totally hilarious. Depends how you see things. [$100, CharlesAndMarie.com]
