Vases, Limited, 2003
Mass-manufactured ceramic objects are traditionally cast in plaster molds, which break down after about 60 uses. This series of ceramic vases shows the deterioration of the mold; each cast vase is eroded more than the last. Despite the seeming identicality celebrated in mass manufacturing, Limited highlights the limits of this production process.
