The sculpture is created from assembled pieces of a broken 18th-century Chinese porcelain teapot, tea leaves and mixed media. This is the first teapot sculpture that Bouke de Vries created. The piece depicts a teapot in the process of breaking, with all of its contents spilling out, giving this traumatic incident a poetic context.
