SUICIDIO DE LOS TULIPANES

It is composed with different size cubes ascending, creating the illusion of instability which is also a reference to the volatile nature of the Tulip mania.

The cubes work each as a stand alone piece or together to form a whole tulip vase.
The tower vase is then an interactive art object and the viewer may play with the composition however they wish.

They are glazed with a shiny tin glaze and decorated with drawings made with cobalt.
