How can I transform objects beyond their everyday function?

Concrete Bowls

These bowls were designed to subvert the expected aesthetic and tactile experience of an everyday object. I wanted to take a bowl and make it more than just a purely functional object and see how I could change the way users interact with and perceive it. Rather than simply being an object that is used and then hidden away, it transformed into a statement piece, an object that could be appreciated outside of its function.
