‘ Once upon a time there was no time.


The King and Queen kept the water purified,

humans remember it as the Golden age.’


Two elongated clay heads executed in a raw and primitive way, sit on pedestals. The tops of their heads are cut off but still lay in their place. Eyes are made of screws inserted into the face and the back of the head. The front eyes and back eyes are connected with rubber strips. Their noses are holes edged with brass bolts. The mouths are made from water taps. These heads are two functional water-filtering units. 

The tops of their heads/vessels are made porous. If you flip the top of the heads over, they serve as sieves, removing all of the impurities in the water. When turned upside down they resemble crowns. The nose can be closed when vacuum stopper is pushed firmly into the brass bolts. When the air is pumped from the water vessel, it can stay fresher for a longer duration. All of these elements create purified water, which can then be consumed from their mouths.

The King and Queen water filtering vessels are each accompanied by two pots, one inside of the other. ‘Pot-in-pot’ works as a natural cooling system, based on principles of thermodynamics. One pot is placed into another and sand is placed in-between. The pot inside is made porous and the sand should be wet. Both pots should be covered with a wet cloth. Pots are then filled with vegetables. 

Visitors are invited to take the vegetables offered by the King and Queen of plenty, to their homes.

Long live King and Queen of plenty!
