Like an oracle, this fragile volume, a breathing mouth in its frothy textile, is a suggestion of visions. The three levels of matter incite an irresistible urge to touch, like a burning desire for answers to our quests.

This vase, a totem erected in homage to organic matter, is conceived as a narrow passageway, closed and secret, through which one must plunge in order to break through to freedom on the other side. The exterior surface, solid and supple, with luminous iridescent flesh tones, and the warm interior together evoke an engulfing tunnel journey from which one emerges like one reborn from a transcendental experience.

This ovoid form suggests a foreign fragility with its crackled aspect. It evokes a fossil animality in long hibernation, a being in gestation one prefers to observe and dares not awaken.
