Family Vase

The “Family Vase” is part of The New Originality: lessons from China, a project about copying as a new understanding of originality. The series of vases are inspired by the Chinese “Famille” colored vases of the 17th and 18th centuries. The vase comes in four models, 3D-printed using very fine sand that makes it extremely fragile — if it is filled with water it disintegrates. The coloration is also a kind of copy, but here, the exact color schemes of classic Chinese vases have been turned into bands of color rather than decorative shapes.
