The American artist’s flowing, poetic images are beautifully expressed on the canvas of the illy cups and cans, reinterpreting the European decorative arts tradition of flower painting on ceramics with a fresh, whimsical twist. The fluid and fanciful designs of the Kiki Smith collection transform the simple pleasure of drinking a cup of illy into an even richer sensory experience, heightened by the visual and tactile aesthetics of contemporary art.
