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. I've seen vases with tigers printed on them, I've seen vases with a tiger skin pattern, but I never saw a tiger jumping through a vase. I tried to freeze that action I never saw.
