This artist makes tableware that bites back

Israeli sculptor Ronit Baranga makes ceramic tableware with human mouths and fingers emerging from them.

She told her art is designed to change the way we see crockery. "The useful, passive, tableware can now be perceived as an active object, aware of itself and its surroundings – responding to it. It does not allow to be taken for granted, to be used. It decides on its own how to behave in the situation," she said. "The blurred border between the living and the still in these works is intriguing. It is fascinating. It is daunting."

Here are some of her creations:
