I first discovered body shaped homeware and furniture when I came across Anissa Kermiche’s ‘Love Handles’ case on Patricia Bright’s office tour video on YouTube. Anissa Kermiche is a successful jewellery maker who broadened her interest and started designing homeware objects. This led to the successful and notorious ‘Love Handles’ vase. The vase is a statement object that empowers femininity and allows us to look at the female body form as art. The Love Handle’s vase is a piece of art and the starting price is £340.00. I would love to get my hands on the vase, however right now I cannot afford it. I still believe that you can incorporate body art into your home décor therefore; I will show you more affordable ways of doing so.
