Narcissus Vases, 2017
Being inspired by the socialist GDR architecture of the original exhibition venue in 2012, the Henselmann-Tower that marks the gateway to Karl-Marx-Allee, I composed geometric forms using terrazzo and mirrored glass to create elaborate objects. Their name Narcissus refers to the partially reflective and partly transparent surface of the glass. The viewer is able to look inside the vases, where the flowers are reflected and multiplied many times. In 2017 as part of the exhibition Vases & Vessels at David Gill Gallery, a new edition of Narcissus Vases made from Italian Terrazzo Rosa Perlino and Rosso Levante, polished stainless steel and smoked Parsol glass was presented.
