On magic caps and slit pants

This vase is a modern copy of a 3100 year-old handmade Chinese vase.
It was found on the bottom of the sea in the wreck of an old Chinese jonk. The vase was used as a jelly-jar for more than 300 years. The history of the product now makes a new turn. M
arcel Wanders copied the shape and produced it in white porcelain. Like the Chinese ceramist we also leave our makers marks in the pot (like parting-lines, shrink), and thereby make a part of the vase's history visible.
