The glass vase is a replica of a broken 19th-century Chinese porcelain vase. Bouke de Vries reassembles a broken ceramic vessel, creates its replica in glass and places the broken porcelain pieces inside the vase. The glass vessel is therefore a ghost of the original piece, containing its fragments, its memory.
