'RATxCHICKS' is a project name for Michelle Im's tableware production line. A play on the words 'ratchet' and 'rad chicks', each piece is handmade and decorated with rich surfaces that deliberately combine pattern elements that don't normally go together. Through animated characters and Big Apple themes, RATxCHICKS uses narrative story telling that seek refuge in humor, relishing in the absurdities of everyday life. As a team of 1 person and 10 fingers, she creates very limited batches in her Queens, NY studio that are made available to collectors and object enthusiasts in periodic updates.
