In the summer of 2004 I spent 3 months in the European ceramic work center in Den Bosch playing with clay, shapes and moulds. This resulted in a few vases and some other objects that where presented in the exhibition ‘A fine mess.’ at Brutto Gusto in Rotterdam. This is one of the 3 projects I did during this period.
Three vases that try to explain terms used for city structures (left to right):
Agglomeration Vase - one big vase confiscated smaller surrounding vases.
Conglomeration Vase - small vases stuck together creating one new big vase
Vinex Vase - a vase with its own vinex-location* in the shape of a small cancer,
(*Large outer city areas with massive new housing development, if you're not Dutch, don't even try getting it)
Not for sale.
