They talk about some of their works, including “Patch up London”, a “presouvenir”; “tools you bake”, a series of six hand-spun baking bowls developed in collaboration with the metal goods factory Hugo Bräuer in Berlin; “hoch die Tassen”, unique cups made of discarded second hand cups and a prefabricated glass stems.
