Conversation Piece

The vase was created for the exhibition `Conversation Piece´ at Gallery Nørby in Copenhagen.
A conversation piece is defined as an unusual object that provokes conversation.

My conversation piece is shaped like a gingerbread woman. The vase is decorated with pictographs. Normally pictographs are conventionalized pictures that work as signs everybody will understand immediately. But these pictographs are a mixture of well known pictographs and pictographs I have invented for the occasion and they will probably not be understood by everybody.
The combination of the pictographs tells little stories about being a woman and will be interpreted differently according to who the observer is.
