Inspired by still life paintings from the 17th century and the large Empire vases in the gardens this vase and box with a surrealist touch feature a bouquet of flowers in porcelain from which a snail emerges symbolizing home and a butterfly lands, alluding to the concept of metamorphosis that these pieces represent This idea is expressed in the vase through its use with real flowers which in the piece are transformed into flowers of the whitest porcelain biscuit In the box mostly decorated in black and white there is only one colored butterfly that expresses the idea that it flew from the vase
