Tuip Vase | Fernanda Cortes
Romeos (Tulip vase)   61.5 cm x 54.5 cm x 41 cm  Hand-sculpted earthenware, shiny tin glaze, and decorated with drawings made with cobalt.  It is composed of different size cubes, ascending, creating the illusion of instability, which is also a reference to the volatile nature of the ‘Tulip mania’ (1636 – 1637) The drawings are personal memories of my ex-partners. My second name is Julieta and in this Tulip vase are all the volatile Romeos.

Romeos (Tulip vase)

61.5 cm x 54.5 cm x 41 cm

This tulip vase is composed of different size cubes, ascending, creating the illusion of instability, which is also a reference to the volatile nature of the ‘Tulip mania’ (1636 – 1637). This situation exposes the problem of speculation and demand in the capitalist economic system.
