Qualities such as fragility and instability raise questions in regard to the relationship between the mould and the cast. The vase is designed such that its sides become thinner toward the edges. Although all the vases are cast from the same mold, each vase has its’ own unique shape as the act of extracting the object from the mold inevitably breaks its thin edge. The serial nature of the cast object is thus – quite literally – fractured.
