Inspired by still life paintings from the 17th century and the large Empire vases in the gardens, this vase and box, with a surrealist touch, feature a bouquet of flowers in porcelain from which a snail emerges, symbolizing home, and a butterfly lands, alluding to the concept of metamorphosis that these pieces represent.

This idea is expressed in the vase through its use with real flowers, which in the piece are transformed into flowers of the whitest porcelain biscuit. In the box, mostly decorated in black and white, there is only one colored butterfly that expresses the idea that it flew from the vase and that it will now cause a metamorphosis in that piece. This vase and box are large-format pieces where white biscuit is combined with black porcelain biscuit. There are about 40 flowers carved and glued by hand that are then delicately painted by the manufacture.
