The vase from this work is a constance spry, a lucky find in an op shop.. The vase reminds me of falopian tubes, even to the point of those very large eggs sitting up on very female in its form, the table it sits on is very male in appearance. I called it the tower referencing the tourist t-towel that sits on the table and all that the history of the tower of London might conjur up.
